OER Description:

The most popular resource by far on this website is Professor Dyson’s ‘Guide for Schools’, and this page provides an updated version of this.  Details of the earlier version can be found here – http://sicklecellanaemia.org/teaching-resources/resources/scooter24-29/scooter25.html – and this resource has been translated into several other languages.

The reason for this second edition is change to UK law with the introduction of the Children and Families Act of 2014. This requires schools to make provision for young people with conditions such as sickle cell disease, and the guide further supports this.

We hope this guide is useful and it continues to lead improvements in the way that young people with SCD are integrated into school.

This second blog post provides more background details of the second version of this guide.

The ‘Schools Guide‘ was the result of research by Professor Simon Dyson and colleagues, and assists teachers and policy makers in supporting children with sickle cell anaemia and thalassaemia in schools. The guide is one of this projects most popular open educational resources (OER), and through Simon’s hard work has been translated into several Nigerian languages, with others planned.

This is a lovely video outlining the work, and the bundle of resources contains downloadable slides and documents to support further understanding of this area.

OER Description:

These open educational resources are perhaps some of our most important. They are the result of a research project funded by the UK Economic & Social Research Council and conducted between De Montfort University, University of York and Loughborough University. The first report provides some essential background information to sickle cell disease, which is a complex condition with symptoms ranging from stroke, silent stroke, chronic pain and acute painful crises.

This research project explored how young people are treated in schools, and as a result, a help guide has been produced which many schools are now using and have adapted to provide support and better care of sickle suffers in their education setting.
