School Advocacy from A to Z

August 3, 2016

Back to school time is almost here, and it’s time to pave the way for a successful new school year!  Did you know that APFED offers a wealth of free resources and tools online to support children with eosinophilic-associated diseases (EADs) in a school environment?

The  School Advocacy section at apfed.org serves as a toolkit for parents, students, and educators on how to navigate the school year with an EAD. We’ve developed a variety of helpful information, documents and forms to help students have a safe, rewarding experience at school.

Guidance and tools are available on the following topics:

•    Section 504 Eligibility and Individual Education Plan (IEP) Eligibility
•    Accommodations for Elementary Schools and Middle and High Schools
•    Managing EAD at College
•    Frequently Asked Questions
•    Info for School Staff
•    Templates and Forms
•    Sample 504 Meeting Request and Evaluation Request

Working together, we can help our schools keep students with EAD feeling safe and included. APFED wishes everyone a wonderful new school year!
