The Internet is the top source of information for teenagers and many adults. There are many websites about JIA, however, the quality of information on these sites varies greatly. It is important that you and your teenager talk to your teenager’s doctor to help you understand the information you find on these sites. Here are some tips to help you determine if the site is of good quality. Remember SCREEN!</p><p>Is the sponsor of the site credible? Check out their credentials. One way to do this, though it’s not 100% accurate, is by looking at the domain. Is the site: government (.gov), educational (.edu), or nonprofit organizations (.org)? Is the site current? What is the last date it was updated? </p><table class="akh-table"><tbody><tr><td>S = Source</td><td>Is the sponsor of the site credible? Check out their credentials.
