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 Quick Links 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).
