• Overview

    Crohn's Disease falls under Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). IBD is at least two, separate disorders that cause inflammation (redness and swelling) and ulceration (sores) of the small and large intestines. These two disorders are called ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Crohn's disease can occur anywhere in the digestive tract but is common in the lower small bowel (ileum) or large bowel.

    Blackboards and Bathrooms

    IBD is unpredictable, debilitating and stressful -- especially for children living with Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis. We need to help teachers understand the impact IBD symptoms can have on their students in order to  minimize the negative impact this disease has on students . The CDHF has developed  Blackboards and Bathrooms to provide educators with practical strategies and tools to help their students  reach their academic potential. If your child has IBD, you need to share Blackboards and Bathrooms with your school. Download it now and take it to school tomorrow.
