Can my child with cystic fibrosis attend a regular school?

A child with cystic fibrosis (CF) can attend a regular school. It is encouraged that they get their flu shot every year and also avoid classmates who are sick, so they don't become sick. It is important to make the teachers are aware of a person with cystic fibrosis in the classroom, since they may need to take their medications before meals and during class times. However, besides these medical recommendations, there is no barrier to children with CF attending regular schools and universities. If your child is school age, set up a meeting with the principal to find out how best to communicate the medical needs of your child to your teachers.
