"for more serious conditions like asthma, diabetes or epilepsy ask your pediatrician to submit an action plan to the school that outlines the necessary steps." for example--when a student with asthma should use a rescue inhaler - when a student with diabetes should be given insulin - or what to do in case of seizure.
