Presented by Heather Miller, M.S., CCC-SLP

Food allergies present an increasing challenge for schools. Because of the life-threatening nature of these allergies and their increasing prevalence, school districts and individual schools must be prepared to provide treatment to food-allergic students in the case of anaphylaxis and anaphylaxis emergencies. They must also establish protocols to reduce the risk of a food-allergic reactions and to accommodate students with food allergies. Administration of epinephrine through an EpiPen is discussed as part of emergency management of anaphylaxis due to food allergies.
