Not So Perfect Attendance
Chidren who have special needs sometimes miss a lot of school. Certain medical treatments or hospital stays mean that school time is often missed. If your child has a chronic condition that means they will miss school, talk with your child`s teacher. Arrange to have homework or lessons sent home for the child to do when he/she is feeling up to it. Arrange for home or hospital visits with therapists if appropriate. Ask other parents to bring friends to visit if possible, or have the class make a card or picture for their ill classmate. Try as much as possible to make the ill child still feel like part of the class.
