Celiac Disease Resources for Teachers
The role of the classroom teacher in supporting a child with celiac disease is extremely important.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about celiac disease and how you can support all children with celiac disease who are a part of your classroom. Below you will find a short video that details how a teacher can ensure a safe and fulfilling school year for a child with celiac disease. Additionally, you will find several resource documents to help with implementing a 504 plan for a child with celiac disease.
It’s important to remember that accommodations for a child with celiac disease should be documented within the context of tailored 504 plan to help promote health, while minimizing the risk of social stigmatization or exclusion from a classroom wide activity to which other peers have access. We have a template 504 plan available to assist schools with developing plans for a child with celiac disease.
