Back to School 2021

Back to school is an exciting time of year, but it can also be a very hectic transition from summer. Join us in our annual Back to School Series, featuring Kyle Landry, Academic Achievement Partnership Program Director at Children’s Wisconsin.

As K-12 school districts, colleges, and universities around the country announce Fall 2021 education plans, patients and families are left wondering what to do. Is it safe to attend in-person classes? Will I be able to get required services virtually? Will my child’s educational institution continue their IEP/504/Health Plan needs?

Conquering CHD realizes there are many factors to consider before returning to school, and there is not a one-size-fits-all recommendation. Thankfully, there are resources available for families to use when speaking with their medical and school teams about their options. We are joined by Kyle Landry for our annual Back to School Series, providing resources and guidance as families make these important educational decisions.
