How to Navigate School When You Have Cystic Fibrosis


The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has a series of videos aimed at helping children with cystic fibrosis get the most out of school life.

Find out what it’s like being a tween with cystic fibrosis. 

The videos look at various aspects of education beginning with daycare all the way through to high school. They assist parents by offering advice on how to partner with the school to ensure that their child gets the most from their school life and education as well as how to manage treatments with extra-curricular activities, and how to teach CF patients independence and help them through the transition from pediatric to adult healthcare.

Parents explain some of the challenges school life poses and give valuable advice on how to help children avoid germs and infections, and how their schools assisted in ensuring their children’s needs are met.

Discover how teens with cystic fibrosis make the transition from high school to college.
