Most teachers have had no first-hand experience contending with the medical problems of the children they have in their classrooms. Teachers need your help to educate them about juvenile rheumatic diseases and how it affects your child. And you need their help to ensure your child has a successful school year.
Make it clear to your child’s teacher early in the year that you want to be an active participant in the child’s education and that you’re interested in being helpful. This is the cornerstone for cooperative communication.
