This is a "no nonsense" 32-page guide that covers everything from the legalities of food allergies to social concerns.

Food Allergies and School: A Guide to Keeping Your Child Safe and Included is a straightforward reference that every parent with a school-age food allergic child should consider. The author, Ruth LovettSmith, covers the various programs and laws to be familiar with, action plans, and social concerns. Here is a quick rundown of the chapters included:

  • Chapter 1: Food Allergy Plans
  • Chapter 2: Food Allergy as a Disability
  • Chapter 3: Creating a Plan for School
  • Chapter 4: A Note About Privacy Laws
  • Chapter 5: Your Responsibility, Your Child’s Responsibility, The School’s Responsibility
  • Chapter 6: Common Food Allergy Myths
  • Chapter 7: Common Questions
  • Resources

The guide is just 32 pages, but there isn’t any fluff. Ruth does a great job of getting to the point and putting everything in a very structured format that works great as a reference. At present, this ebook is available via kindle.
