How to talk to your teacher about your arthritis
Sophia has juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
In Year 10, Sophia developed a PowerPoint presentation as part of her personal project. She surveyed teachers at her school and adolescents she met through Camp Footloose and developed a guide for teachers. It explains the symptoms and effects of having JIA and provides suggestions about how to support students with similar disabilities.

Sophia has given permission for others to adapt the presentation with their own information so it tells your arthritis journey.
We need people like you, Sophia—thanks for sharing your work with us .
