ME/CFS Resources for Educators

1. Primer for young people with ME: this excellent primer for diagnosis and management in young people (2017), discusses the challenges with children and young people with ME trying to engage in education. At the back, in the Appendix, there are some helpful resources to give to educators/schools.

2. The CDC guide for school/teachers, while written in USA, covers the essential information about accommodating and supporting a young person with ME/CFS.

3. Very useful one page summary for schools, from Dr. Faith Newton, Delaware State University, August 2017.

4. This is a great sample letter, also from Dr Newton, that a physician or GP can adapt and send to a school to increase understanding and to support the accommodations needing to be put in place.

5. Recent blog article from Teachwire.
