Celiac Disease Program
Gluten-Free at School
The Celiac Disease Program at Children’s National Hospital, in conjunction with the Celiac Disease Foundation and RESOLVE, created the 2020 Voluntary Recommendations for Managing Celiac Disease in Learning Environments.
These standardized recommendations provide patients, patient families and schools with a uniform approach to keeping students with celiac disease safe at school.
As part of this initiative, we created 11 training videos outlining how to navigate celiac disease and the gluten-free diet at school:
- Introduction: Managing Celiac Disease in Learning Environment
- What is Celiac Disease?
- The Gluten-Free Diet
- Supporting Social Emotional Development of Children with Celiac Disease
- Federal Laws and Regulations that Govern Celiac Disease
- Where is Gluten Found in Schools
- For Medical Providers Who Diagnose and Manage Children with Celiac Disease
- Families with Celiac Disease: What to Expect at School
- For Learning Environment Staff Managing Celiac Disease
- Food Service Providers Training
- Pathway to a Celiac Disease Management Plan
The Celiac Disease Program at Children’s National Hospital can only offer 504 Plan services to our patients. If you’d like to discuss setting up accommodations for your child, please email our team.
