    Is there a link for the paper @John Mac


    Based on the extract It’s positive that most of these 11 teachers were able to recognise the impact of ME on their pupils.

    Concluding that Clinical services should consider collaborating with teachers is hardly cutting edge thinking.

    The role of technology ( such as no isolation robots for those who can attend school on a part time basis) and remote learning options needs to be in the mix too.

    It helps retain opportunity and realise potential.

    I wonder if all this talk of remote learning during the pandemic will make any difference for the education of kids with ME or any illness that limits the ability to take part in school.

    It should, but given provision seems to be patchy at best it is not yet the game changer it could be.
