Meeting the Health Needs of Chronically Ill Students
American School Health Association
Chronic illnesses affect at least 10% to 15% of American children.
Students with chronic conditions, such as asthma, allergies,
diabetes, and epilepsy, require a comprehensive, coordinated,
systematic approach at school. They can function to their maximum
potential if their needs are met. Schools can work together with parents,
students, health care providers, and the community to provide a safe,
supportive educational environment for these students and ensure they
have the same educational opportunities as other students.
