A healthy mind resides in a healthy body! Many of the factors that affect health outcomes also affect academic performance.
Research has shown that children with poor general health are 2.3 times more likely to perform below potential at school.
There are several medical causes of school-failure & underperformance. Iron-Deficiency Anemia & Visual Refractive Errors are examples of the many medical causes of school failure, which can be averted through timely detection & prompt intervention.
Periodic health screening & check-ups will ensure optimal functioning of a child at school.
Also, while the child is at school, he deserves prompt care by a Nurse trained to provide first aid for falls, injuries, fever & common medical illnesses. This is to ensure the safety & comfort of the child until he can get to his doctor or hospital.
