This is a call out to all educators!!!
It’s been a while since I had to think about disabilities studies (my minor in undergrad), but I recall bits of a 504 Plan. With Kait starting Kindergarten in the Fall, I’m very concerned about potential exposure and ingestion of gluten. It’s Kindergarten and I’m sure glue is a staple in the classroom!!! Of course, I can bring in gluten free glue (Elmer’s), but what about protecting her in art class. I’m thinking modeling clay (i.e. Play-Doh) and finger paints…She needs to be protected. Also, school meals. Federally funded school lunch programs prohibit children from being excluded regardless of diet. Is this correct? I’m fine with providing Kait her meals and snacks. We’ve been doing that for a while.
So, educators out there, should I be considering having a 504 Plan for Kait???
