Accommodations for Students (K-12 & Higher Ed), Employees & Everyday Life

Many patients with IBD experience difficulties in school, work and everyday life because of barriers such as frequent absences/extended sick leave, trouble concentrating due to symptoms, or needing to take time off for appointments, surgeries or procedures. Accommodations can provide individuals living with IBD extra support, flexibility and/or modifications necessary to help address these challenges.
