Back-to-School with Chronic Illness
Everyone knows that a new school year means new notebooks, folders and pencils. Maybe even new back-to-school shoes or clothes!
Students with chronic illnesses and their parents know it means juggling their symptoms along with their work and social life. They know it means teaching a new set of educators about their condition and how it affects them in and out of school. It may mean new IEPs and 504 plans. In other words, it’s not all school supplies and wardrobe for them.
