Other Adults

Your pain might make it hard for you to follow school rules. 

Maybe you need some more time to get from class to class, or you can't participate in certain activities when your pain flares.

You may be entitled to certain accomodations under The Americans with Disabilities Act, including working with your school administrators to create a special list of instructions called a 504 Plan.

You may want to talk about your pain and limitations with an adult in an authority position - teacher, coach, counselor, or administrator.  You may not get what you want, but you have the right to ask.

The person is more likely to take you seriously if you address him/her with confidence and maturity:

  • Make an appointment to talk with the person at a convenient time
  • Rehearse what you want to say
  • Face the person fully when you speak
  • Use good posture
  • Maintain eye contact
  • State your concern or request clearly
  • Thank the person for hearing what you had to say
