Children with uveitis miss school for frequent appointments, lab draws, and treatment. They may need regular administration of medications in school. In some cases, children have visual impairment and require special services and adaptations to address vision needs. Patients commonly feel “isolated” and “alone” since their friends and family are unfamiliar with “uveitis.” To provide support to physicians, patients and families, the Pediatric Uveitis Task Force developed a template letter for a 504 plan. This template can be modified to fit the needs of the student.
