Health Advice Plans For Schools

 “The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.”

Health Advice and Plan For Schools

There are times when children are too unwell to attend school regularly. While help is sought for the underlying health problems, it can be incredibly stressful to deal with ongoing questions and queries from other settings, including schools.

Health advice plans can assist in ensuring your child’s health needs are known to these settings. Most schools welcome a clear diagnosis and health plan around a child, which can help them to safely implement additional strategies your child may need at school, like extra time for exams.

At Kent Kids Neurology, Health Advice-Plans for schools, can only be provided after a consultation. This is so that your child’s health issues/needs are fully assessed, which helps produce an effective Health Advice/Plan that works for you and your child.

Our aim is not “to exempt” your child from school. It is to formulate a strategy that would help safely re-integrate your child into normal activities.

Here’s what you can expect from a consultation for Health Advice Plan for School:

  • No wait time (get seen within 2 weeks)
  • Full medical assessment and examination to establish your child needs
  • Health screening that will help identify and manage any health conditions appropriately
  • Setting expectations and recognising the roles of all professionals involved
  • We prefer if you can bring a note from school with any specific questions or concerns, they may have. This would help us make more effective plans and recommendations
  • An effective Health Advice document that would address your concerns, facilitate recovery and return to normal for your child
  • Ongoing follow up of the primary condition may be offered*
  • Referral to other appropriate paediatric services, if required
