My idea is to emphasize that schools must meet a food allergic student's basic needs before the student can concentrate on learning.

Comments?  Suggestions?  Ideas?  This is my first draft, and I'd like to make a polished version to share.

Oooh-- I like it!! I need a bit of time to reflect in order to make suggestions, but my initial impression is that it's a great idea and in pretty good shape already.

Oooo. Squeel!!! This is so such a parallel to how the nursing field would manage it!! And to think how many folks here said I was way off in my comparison to maslow (and piaget). Oh and erikson, too.

Squeal! is right  I was just thinking tonight of what I could give to my DS's student teacher about food in the classroom.

The one who keeps using food in her lessons . . . . 

Something like this would be perfect.

I'm glad you like what I have so far! Arkadia, I like the idea of making a chart of developmentally appropriate expectations of kids with food allergies based on Piaget, or similar.

Very nice. The presentation is awesome. I've tried so many times to address all those things and it seems like it comes out in a complicated mumbo jumbo.
The pyramid is just so on the money! Great job.

EXCELLENT. This could be very useful. I've explained this verbally, only to get blank looks (actually I think they - the staff in 504 mtg - "got it" but didn't want to get it). The visual helps a ton! Great job!
