Going to school while living with a chronic illness, or while going through medical treatment, can be very tough for kids. In this video, patients from C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital talk about their experiences trying to keep up with school and tips for coping with missing some of the experiences that other kids are having during the school day.
Children can be the best teachers! Mott Kids 4 Kids videos offer the unique perspective of patients, parents and siblings on a variety of topics related to childhood illness. Our hope is that these videos can be a resource for other children and their families who are experiencing some of these same challenges and opportunities during their journey.
