School toolkit launches to transform understanding of hypermobility syndromes in children

The free online resource, funded by The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, The Peter Harrison Foundation and The Ehlers-Danlos Support UK, has been developed in collaboration with the Hypermobility Syndromes Association to plug the urgent need for education of staff in mainstream primary and secondary schools to give children a better chance of living normal lives.

Raising awareness of pupils with Ehlers-Danlos syndromes / Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders.

Increasingly Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and the closely related Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) are being diagnosed in some pupils but very little is known about the impact this has on the pupil, parents/carers and their attainment and attendance in school.

What schools need to know to support learners with hypermobility and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome

Ehlers Danlos syndrome comes in many guises and as such, it often takes a long time for people with this multi-symptomatic condition to be diagnosed. I should know: I was 46 when the random pains, dizziness and fatigue I'd always had, blew up into enduring disability. My two (adult) children also have it to varying degrees and, as an advisor for the Ehlers Danlos Society, my knowledge of the condition really helped when it came to helping their school understand too.

School toolkit launches to transform understanding of hypermobility syndromes in children

 

Jane Green MA Ed, a professional educationalist and adviser on hypermobility syndromes and the EDS UK content lead for the School Toolkit, says: “The School Toolkit for EDS and JHS is long awaited and overdue. Schools have commonly not understood EDS and JHS in children and young people. Often children and young people are not believed to be ill, in pain or injured as it seems to come out of nowhere.
