Anaphylaxis Education Program NSW
Having a child with allergies can be confusing and stressful, so we have compiled useful, evidence-based information to help parents and families.
NSWAEP hold group information sessions for parents and carers and we can provide one-on-one education if these groups don’t suit your needs. Please contact us for more information.
We also help teens and young people navigate life with allergies. We believe that having food allergies should not stop anyone from living a full, adventurous life – the key is preparation and communication!
We provide face-to-face groups for early teens/tweens (grade 6 and 7) to help them navigate the transition from primary to high school.
- Register for an information session for parents and carers
- Register for a face-to-face group for teens and tweens
