We also hope that all of you that joined us at Worlds to take workshops and social dance each night had a great time too.

California does not recognize other medical authorities as authorized to sign a written medical statement to determine a child’s diet.
Physician assistants and nurse practitioners both work under the direction of a licensed physician.
This MB contains updated information regarding the definition of a recognized medical professional.
The Agency must provide food substitutions to a child with a disability when the need for a substitution is supported by a written medical statement or completed CDE Medical Statement form that is signed by a licensed physician, a physician assistant, or a nurse practitioner.
Either medical statement must clearly identify the child’s: The Agency is required to make dietary accommodations, including texture modifications (such as preparing chopped, ground, or pureed foods), when a recognized medical authority provides a medical statement to the Agency for children whose disability restricts their diet.
