Chronic Diseases
With the passage of federal laws, such as Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act, schools are required to provide reasonable accommodations for students with chronic diseases. The tabs below will provide specific resources for the most common chronic diseases in school age children (asthma, diabetes, life threatening food allergies and seizure disorders) and those not as common (for example, sickle cell, tourette's syndrome, and cystic fibrosis) along with pertinent educational opportunities, statistics and grant opportunities (if available).
