Keeping Seriously Sick Kids Connected to School Through Technology
Approximately 30% or ~1,170,000 K-12 students around the country are diagnosed with mental or chronic illness. This is a significant large-scale issue and the resulting regular short and long-time absences from school impacts on the students’ social, cognitive, physical and mental wellbeing. Adverse outcomes of these absences include academic underachievement, developmental delays, increased learning difficulties, low self-esteem, reduced social support and the disruption of friendships.
