Sorry if this thread exists, didn't see one. My ds is a senior and I.just got notification for 504 meeting. What changes do I need to make for him entering college? He will be living at home.

That's great. Yeah--we have a couple of related threads.  I'm not sure if we have one exactly like this. We really, really need to have a forum or a subforum for college. 

But wow--glad they initiated this.  Very cool.

It's probably because they can't wait to get rid of us, lol! If you recall they switched all the allergy kids from 504 plans to iep and I was the lone resister.

Threads aside, the big change coming is the student must take responsibility to self-identify and self-advocate.  Pretty much postsecondary wants to see the student do it all - no parents.  Since there's no FAPE there's no safeguards for parents.

And the experience of at least two members (both new I think) with freshmen bears that out. 

Colleges will see a sharp increase in students with FAs next year. And then more the next year.  And then the flood will hit them.

A friend of ours is a campus police officer and says he gets phone calls all the time from food allergy parents.


I'm not really worried about accommodations, wasn't even figuring we.would have a meeting this.year.  Just making sure I'm not missing anything.

Public safety has nothing to do with programs.  The BOT has more to do with campus police (including a move to armed, sworn force as many campuses are) than faculty or business affairs staff.

See this compilation thread.

Maybe we should combine this thread (the last listed below) with the first thread in the list?  What do you think momm2boys?

Understood, was mentioning in context of increasing numbers of fa students they are seeing.

Yup!!  I've been using the analogy of a tsunami . . . our kids are the little wave that precedes and warns of impending, colossal wave.
Is this where I blame iPhone and cuss like an old fighter pilot's wife?

That was the image I had in my head when I typed that, but I was too tired to think of the word. It wouldn't come to me. Lol.

Yeah, my daughter's year will see a huge number of kids graduating HS with food allergies. When she was in first grade they put nearly all the allergy kids in the same class (two kids managed to escape that fate through parental intervention).  There were probably 20 or so kids out of 150/175 that have food allergies; that was at one ES in one grade. And that was only of the kids whose parents had notified the school of the child's allergy. Three ESs feed my DD's MS, so I would imagine that there are about 60 kids out of a class of 330-350 with food allergies.

DD allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, and egg; OAS to cantaloupe and cucumber

Meeting tomorrow. If anyone can think of anything different I need added specifically for college that we don't have now, I would greatly appreciate it!
