A new school year can be stressful for several reasons, especially for those of us with kids who have medical conditions or learning needs that require special attention.

The good news is, there are plans that can be written specific to your child’s needs that can help parents, students, teachers, nurses and staff be on the same page.

Written plans act as an agreement between students and the school to make sure that barriers are removed, and accommodations are made so that your child can get the most out of their education.
