Supporting Students with Prevalent Medical Conditions


If your child has a prevalent medical condition (asthma, anaphylaxis, epilepsy), it is necessary to work with the school to develop a plan of care that will be followed by school staff.   How can you help your child’s school have an up to date medical plan for your child?

 

  • Inform the school if your child has a prevalent medical condition or if there is any change to the status of their condition during the school year.
  • Meet with the school principal/administration to share relevant information in order to develop a plan of care.
  • Provide the school (on a yearly basis) a consent to administer medication form signed by your family doctor.  The form can be found at on this page of the UCDSB website.
  • Provide all necessary medication (EpiPen, inhaler, etc.) to the school early in the school year, accompanied by the consent to administer medication form signed by your family doctor.
  • Teach your child about their medical condition so that they know how to avoid potential triggers and so that they can recognize the signs that may indicate a need to put the plan of care into action.

 

A yearly meeting will be held early in the school year to create/review and update the plan of care for your child.
