A Child Life specialist can help children learn to swallow pills. </p> <h3>Some children forget to take their medicine</h3> <p>Here are some tips to help your child remember to take their medicine:</p> <ul> <li>Set a watch with built-in alarms for yourself or your child. </li> <li>Ask your child's teacher or school principal to help schedule time so your child can take their medicine in the middle of the school day. </li> <li>Connect taking medicine with events that are part of your child's daily routine, like breakfast, brushing teeth or bedtime. </li> <li>Work out a reward system, like a chart with stickers that add up to different prizes.</li> </ul> <h2>Your child may have trouble with school</h2> <h3>Your child may miss school</h3> <p>Children with CNS vasculitis often miss a lot of school because of hospital visits. Keep your child's school informed about your child's condition. This will help the school keep your child up to date on school work and in touch with their classmates. </p> <h3>Your child may feel sick at school</h3> <p>When your child is being treated for CNS vasculitis, even though they feel very sick, they may look healthy. This can make it harder for other children and teachers to remember that they are sick. Here are some tips to help: </p> <ul> <li>Your child needs to tell people at school how they are feeling and if they need help. This is called self-advocating.</li> <li>You or your child could also find someone at school who can help support your child. This person could be an older student or a teacher. </li> </ul><img alt="" src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/CNS_vasculisits_changes_school-aged.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/CNS_vasculisits_changes_school-aged.jpgCNS vasculitis: Lifestyle changes for school-aged children
