Medical Needs in Schools

Equity in Education for Children
with Medical Needs

Our team at the Medical Needs in Schools Project draws together professionals from various backgrounds who can help. The relationships between physical and mental health, educational, and social and emotional development is well researched and documented. The bottom line is that young people with long or short term medical conditions will need more time off school than their healthy peers creating a disadvantage in their education. The MNIS project is committed to providing equity for the education of children and young people with medical conditions and eradicating the unfairness of the opportunity gap.

This project was conceived in 2017 and has grown in terms of its reach and resource base each year since.
