Tube Feedings at School

Many of our students in the intensive special needs classroom are feed by a g- or j-tube, either alone or in addition to oral feeding. In my first job (what feels like a thousand years ago) teachers and para-educators gave students g-tube feedings, the two schools I have worked at since then both have a nurse give the tube feedings. I have had students "graduate" from g-tubes while in my class (an exciting and scary time for families) and students start using a g-tube while in my class (also a scary time for families). Below I have created a list of links about g- and j-tubes.
