hazardous materials in artroom-spina bifida children


Date: Tue Sep 07 2004 - 17:39:02 PDT

  I have two spina bifida 1s gaders this year who are allergic to some
materials. They cannot tolerate latex. I was told some crayons have it
and others don't. What about paints? The para told me only Crayola brand
could be used. What about clays? We are working with clay that will be
fired next week. I checked some of the sites I have seen listed recently
but can't find what I'm looking for. Does anyone have any experience
with this?

ps We had 5 inches of rain today and still raining hard. We are under a
tornado watch, a flash flood watch and a wind advisory. We lost 3 big oak
trees today in our back yard. Fortunately they only fell on my husband's
little hobby ( a motocross track)
