Energy 4 Education

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

School success for children with mitochondrial disease begins with good communication by all involved parties, including school staff, parents, doctors, PT, OT, speech therapists, and the child when applicable. Clear and open communication increases understanding of how medical providers, parents, and educators can develop a plan which uses accommodations and modifications in school to support a child’s energy demand.

This education focused section aims to improve a child’s success in school by helping parents and the education team to better collaborate and creatively support the child or teen with mitochondrial disease.
