Alright Binder Buds,

I know this is the moment you’ve been waiting for!

So let’s finally put these binders together! You’ve been so patient.

TODAY’S ASSIGNMENT: Build Your Binder!

We are going to keep this as simple as possible. So let’s do this in steps.

1. Put your homework sheets into page protectors.

2. Put your action plan in the front cover of the binder. Or use this cover sheet. Or create your own cover.

3. Put your papers into the binder, perhaps in this order:

  • action plans 
  • how to use epi (second page of action plan)
  • signs & symptoms of anaphylaxis 
  • anaphylaxis 6 stages poster
  • post-anaphylaxis reminders
  • back-to-school checklist
  • medical contacts sheet
  • unsafe foods list
  • safe foods list
  • physician papers

4. Write out 7 tabs, using permanent marker, for the top of your pages. See below. 

 

 

IMPORTANT TAB: action plans, epi instructions, signs & symptoms, 6-stages, post anaphylaxis, medical contacts.

FOOD TAB: safe food lists, unsafe food avoidance list

MEALS, RECIPES, TRIPS, & HOLIDAY TABS: You may not have papers yet for these tabs, but still create those by putting the tab on a blank page protector. I can help you with those later if you’d like!

ALLERGIST TAB: any papers not important to the every day care of your child but important for occasional reference and keeping allergy history in one place.

OPTIONAL SIDE TABS: If you want to break things down more within the top tabs, consider using side tabs to do that. I have my other son’s asthma action plan tabbed on the side, inside the IMPORTANT section so we can find it quickly.

5. Put extra page protectors in the back of your binder so you can easily add sheets when you want to.

6. Print and cut out this spine and insert into the spine of the binder, optional.

And that’s it! The safety portion of your food allergy binder is off to a great start, excellent job! 

Feel free to add any other info you deem important for keeping your kiddo(s) safe. 

This binder is not all-inclusive but includes some essential foundations for your peace-of-mind and for training other caregivers or handing down to your child. 

I’m so proud of you for working on this important tool with me! 

Hopefully you feel a huge sigh of relief and weight lifted off your shoulders.

Sit back and relax, my friend, you deserve it. 

Let us know in the comments how it went!

Thank you for all of this. We are very new to all the allergy stuff and are still in the process of getting epi pens. It’s always helpful to have someone who’s been there to help and give tips. So thanks so much.
