Interesting read, see link:

KIDS AND LYME DISEASE
HOW IT AFFECTS THEIR LEARNING


Introduction: There is an urgent need for Lyme disease education and awareness in the schools throughout the United States.

In addition to the "ABC's of Lyme," and the new "Time for Lyme"video, Lyme professionals - physicians, psychotherapists, neuropsychologists, need to be seeking opportunities to provide in-service training to schools, so that teachers and other school professionals understand and appreciate the difficulties that face kids with Lyme every day.

We need to call on the schools to help these children, and education is the key.


The following is a presentation I gave to the Northern Dutchess County (NY) Support Group in November 2002.

Perhaps it will provide ideas for other presentations to Lyme groups and schools around the country.

Every child with Lyme disease should feel understood and supported, and be successful in school.

Lyme disease may be a handicap that some children have, but it should not be an insurmountable obstacle.

I watched my daughter go from a very well-liked, high achieving child to a very insecure teen, failing her favorite subject with the onset of LD symptoms, and then (almost) back again. And we are only half-way into treatment, since we have to time it around school (introduce new remedies on breaks, etc).

One wonders how many struggle with this.
