Ever wonder how to build an academic plan for your child? We’ll explore the world of education for a child with a bleeding disorder, including the impact of setting expectations at home and having a proactive relationship with your child’s school. Recognizing that we may experience guilt, social obstacles, and absenteeism, we’ll discuss ways to help establish clear goals, positive routines, individualized health care plans, and a cycle of responsibility and self-advocacy.
