    I appreciate the flexibility as well.  My oldest daughter recently had chicken pox and was still able to participate in school activities while she healed.  With 4 children we’ve been though the myriad sicknesses and are still able to not fall too far behind.

    Hi Toni,
    Thanks for sharing your story.  Our son has a condition called Pseudotumor Cerebri (intracranial hypertension) that causes him to have frequent headaches.  He missed 4 months of school last year.
    This year he is enrolled with Ohio Connections Academy. It has been wonderful because he has 24/7 access to his lessons. 
    This way when he is having a bad day he can take his pain meds and go back to bed. Later when he is feeling better he can do his lessons. 
    It has taken a lot of pressure off of him to do school this way.  The thing he loves the most is ‘no homework’ because when he finishes his lessons for the day – he is done!

    Hi Mary!
    Thanks for sharing, too. I am happy to hear about other success stories
    through Connections. Belle likes the “no homework” part, too! She
    especially likes the Live Lessons that she can replay. You can’t do that
    in regular public school!!

    We just finished our enrollment, for us, our son’s epilepsy became a ‘joke’ to classmates and he was having trouble with bullying. For whatever reason, seeing their classmate have a seizure was ‘fun’ and it made him a target for cruelty. Today after finishing the last of his enrollment forms, I finally saw that amazing smile again. His sadness just flew out the window. I’m very excited for him to get back to learning and actually enjoy it, like he did before the seizures started.

    Debbie,

    Welcome to the Connections family!  It is such a blessing to see that “light” come on again in your child, isn’t it?  Just wait til he has been enjoying virtual school for a while – you will be yet one more family who is thankful that there is another option for a quality education!  Congratulations to you for having the courage to step out of your comfort zone and be an advocate for your son!

    Hair fall is not abnormal it is the normal issue of today beside the stomach issues and headache. The major causes of the hair falling frequently are the uneven eating routine and the abnormal way of life. Hair fall is delivered by the horrible way of life and weight control plans.

    That’s right, students with health related issues face many challenges in getting quality education and this makes their life boring. The idea of providing children with such medical conditions a virtual school is something brilliant and appreciable. Good luck.

    Thank you for your post. My daughter has Type 1 DM and chronic debilitating migraine headaches and has already missed quite a bit of school due to 2 recent hospital stays. I am hopeful that she has success with Connections like your daughter has.
