Forms: Individual Healthcare Plan (IHP) Forms For School Use
In our work, we have found a lack of IHP forms appropriate for students with
food allergies. We have responded to this need by designing a clear and concise
IHP form tailored specifically for this purpose. The staff member responsible for
implementing each accommodation is clearly indicated on the form. A planning
worksheet with a step-by-step format is also included to help facilitate this
process. IHP packets include a Cover Sheet, and Accommodation Form, a Planning
Worksheet, an Emergency Treatment Plan, and a list of the Risks of allergen
exposure possible within each 'Focus Area' of the school environment.
