Improving the School Environment

Improving the
School Environment

The school setting can be one of the most stressful environments for the child with Duchenne. Due to the lack of dystrophin in the brain, their school stressors are multifaceted and often traumatic.

Not only do kids with Duchenne frequently have learning differences like dyslexia and dyscalculia, but they often have challenges with self-regulation, executive function, and peer relationships, too.

Thankfully, we can help the student with Duchenne. Through both 1) understanding more about the Duchenne brain and 2) implementing changes to their schedule and environment, we truly can reduce the stress of school and minimize their daily traumas.
