Resources for teachers
Understandably, teachers sometimes worry about having a student with haemophilia in their class. The best approach is to reassure them that it is unlikely to impact upon their everyday classroom practices and to ensure that they have a good understanding of your child’s condition, including what to do in the event of an emergency.
In addition to this website, other resources that your child’s teacher might find useful may include:
- Haemophilia Information for Schools – An Information Kit for Teachers developed by the Haemophilia Foundation Victoria. This comprehensive resource aims to provide teachers with all the information required to maximise the school experience for children with haemophilia.
- The Haemophilia Foundation of Victoria-sponsored seminar for teachers held in February each year at the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne. This seminar is suitable for child care, kindergarten, and primary and secondary school teachers.
- The School Policy & Advisory Guide on haemophilia provided by the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. This guide aims to help ensure schools provide the support needed for students with this condition.
Your Haemophilia Treatment Centre can also help educate teachers and, if necessary, a member of the team may be able to visit your child’s school to provide information and guidance to staff.
