ECE 332 Week 2 Assignment – Point of View

You are a parent of a child who has a serious peanut allergy.  You are meeting with your child’s new teacher to explain this allergy and what specific needs your child has.  Your goal for this meeting is to ensure your child’s comfort and safety in the classroom by communicating your expectations to the teacher. 

For your journal entry, reflect on the following questions:

How do you expect your child to be treated not only by his teacher, but by the rest of the school staff? I don’t want my child to be treated no different from the other children but I want the staff to pay close attention when my child go to eat or when there a party in the school I want everybody to be a were.

How would you want the school staff to talk with the other children about your child’s specific needs and accommodations? I don’t think that I would want the staff to talk about my child’s specific needs and accommodations but to speak about allergy reaction to different foods only because children can be rule to each other so I would just like for them talk over all speak about different foods allergy how serious it could be and how we all have different needs some kids can eat this and some cant and why

In addition to the teacher, who else should be involved in ensuring the safety of your child? The school nurse, the kitchen staff, the lunch aids, and the custodian.
