But, I, personally have been saying this . . .

EXCLAIMING THIS

for more than 10 years.

Before FARE in its current form existed.

And I've not been alone.

MANY, MANY here have been right there too.

Could not attend in moment.

Probably for the best as I might, ahem, have monopolized if a Q&A session at end.
When the link comes up for this, I will share.


Why might I have monopolized in Q&A?

Because I am so effing sick and tired of the acquiescing to supplying the food and accommodation of the food and conditioning to bend over backwards to be the means of inclusion for the child when, in reality and fact and law



EXCLUDE THE FOOD, INCLUDE THE CHILD   {she said, once upon a time on another food allergy board and on previous version of this FAS group . . . and posted as comments on many a news story nationwide . . . and shared with Team Ana (shudder) who ran with it and memed it . . . and now witnesses it going TEAL even . . .  }

should be the NORM and not the exception.

Because the

FOOD is

the barrier to inclusion.

INclusion.



{{Yes, "barrier to inclusion" discussed with Wrightslaw at conference in 2008 or 2009? 
Surprised him and myself in that moment of, teal-blue CLARITY.}}

A number of those folks are here with different user names. :)

At least one of them has done OIT and kid is doing well.


That thread was started when I was driving from Houston to Va by myself when we moved. I remember reading it in hotel rooms after long, exhausting driving days.

Wow, seeing those user names brought back lots of memories.

I agree.  I do wonder about quite a few of them, and how they are doing.  Lots of them I also wonder about their kids, who are likely grown and on to college & beyond. 

It would be interesting to be able to have a conversation about FA stuff now with some of them.

For me, where we are at now, what we'd tolerate and for how long, is so different than back then.  We tried so hard.  We ended up so crushed by what we struggled through and what it revealed to us about people. 

It is kind of hard to read that thread in a way now too, especially knowing how many more years we tried to do what was right.  We should have left that school much sooner than we did.

That did not escape my notice.

I figured as much.  ;-)

The premise also demonstrates the unaddressed conflict between legal advocacy webinars and medical advocacy webinars sponsored through allergy not-for-profits.  What will be done about allergists, who, unaware of their own ignorance, run afoul of Child Find?  This is a well-settled affirmative duty.


Nothing will be done.  Ever.  No meaningful training for them.  Cannot tell them anything anyway.  They must already know everything since they are MD's, right?  (<sarcasm>

Wow, seeing those user names brought back lots of memories.  I'm so glad many of us are still here, but I miss the ones who aren't.  I wonder how Lilpig is doing?

I've been using that particular exact phrase for at least 10 years . . . . since this thread linked below . . . .

I don't normally link to this version of "original" place, but thought this page might bring back some memories for some.

And, FWIW, 3 guesses who DonnaReed is.

Just sayin'.

Exclude the Food, Not the Child

Wed, Sep 27, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

Gina Clowes, FARE’s National Director of Training and Outreach, will share best practices for managing food in school and at extra-curricular activities. Consider when and how to disclose your child’s food allergies. Learn why the “safe snack box” is often not the best choice for inclusion or safety. From classroom to cafeteria to off-campus venues, explore child-friendly accommodations for daily  meals and snacks, celebrations and special events. You can even submit questions in advance to education(at)foodallergy.org.

Interesting title.  Would appreciate a post-webinar briefing for any who attend.
