Managing Celiac Disease in Learning Environments
The Celiac Disease Management Plan for Learning Environments (CDMP) standardizes federal accommodations required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, based upon what is medically and psychologically necessary for a child with celiac disease to succeed at school. The CDMP may differ between schools based upon state and local regulations. Staff should work as a team with each child’s medical provider and family to develop an individual 504 Plan comprised of accommodations listed in the school’s CDMP.
The Celiac Disease Management for Learning Environments Training Program is a self-paced video series and companion guide. The training program instructs schools how to implement accommodations required by the Americans with Disabilities Act for children with celiac disease and assists physicians and patient families in structuring a 504 plan, based upon what is medically and psychologically necessary for children to succeed at school. The training program is available to educators, food service providers, and patient families. We encourage you to share it with your schools and school districts. This training program will complement the 2020 Voluntary Recommendations for Managing Celiac Disease in Learning Environments guide.
