Post subject:  DISCLAIMER

I received some great feedback and contacted Anaphylaxis Canada (thanks for that suggestion - what a great idea !) This is the response I received:

"The CSACI's consensus statement,. "Anaphylaxis in Schools and Other childcare settings" advises parents not to sign consent and waiver of liablity forms that purport to absolve schools from responsibility if epinephrine or other appropriate medical treatment is provided. You can download a copy of the consensus statement from our website at, as well as a copy of the Canadian School Board Assn's Handbook on Anaphylaxis. Pages 19 and 20 addresses the legal context."

...I can't wait to peruse through the link

Chat soon,

Thanks Andrea! This is great information, and coming in a timely fashion for me. I have been asked by my son's school to present to the 4 different classrooms some age-appropriate materials for 2.5 year olds - 8 year olds. This link provided some lesson plans for those age groups. I plan to show the 10 min Alexander the Elephant video, followed by a quick story. These lesson plans also gave me some great ideas to incorporate. Thanks!
