When a child has heart disease, they may face some hurdles in school.
Sometimes, teachers don't know how a heart problem affects a child. They may place too many constraints on a child or not allow enough special rights.
Teachers need your help in knowing how heart disease will affect your child in the classroom.
Expanded contact with your child's school is useful for everyone:
If you have any problems acting as your child's advocate, contact the Heart Institute at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.
We can give you resources to help deal with these issues, such as:
We want to help your child meet their full potential — both in and out of school.
As your child reaches their teens and young adulthood, their heart disease may affect their job. They may face similar problems in the workplace.
Again, there are laws that protect people with physical problems from discrimination at work.
We can help you or your child find these resources if you need them.
