My daughter was diagnosed in Jan. and seems to be adjusting well. I have close contact with the school as well as the nurse. I have asked for the school to start the process of a 504 plan. She is in 6th grade and seems to have a great teaching team. Although I hold the staff in high regards and have nothing but compliments to say about them I have come up with a problem. One of her team teachers planned a classroom project involving graham crackers, frosting and candy. The children are to create a building (like a ginger bread house) then eat it. (Yes, it sounds like fun but if your child has type 1 it isn't!) I was not contacted by the teacher and no information was given to me other than a post on a web. site that isn't used that often. I am not sure if I am over reacting or if I have a right to be as upset as I am. This is not only dangerous but makes her feel like she is very different from the others. This puts her in a place to have limitations on what she can eat and the others have full access to the food and candy. I know that this is the start of a long life filled with this, but the teacher had a choice to do the project or not. I just wanted to know if I had a right to be upset?
