Educating Students with Health Issues

When a student has ongoing medical concerns, attending a bricks-and-mortar school may make it hard to manage his or her health. Many families have found Connections Academy to be a great solution. Learning from home with a flexible schedule, students can eat or rest when needed, rather than when the bell rings. Families can plan around medical appointments or rearrange their agenda when a student isn’t feeling well, so there’s less stress about falling behind in school.

Student Profile Video—Tori Hornick

When Tori was just two years old she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. She underwent four intense rounds of chemotherapy to beat the cancer, but she suffered hearing loss and breathing trouble as a result. Her residual health issues made going to a traditional school challenging. She wore hearing aids which made learning in a traditional classroom harder. She also had lots of doctor appointments, so keeping-up with her classes became difficult.
