I have taught students with many different special needs including mild autism, aspergers syndrome, dyspraxia, partial sight loss and cerebal palsy with very few problems. However, I have a new student who is 9 and suffers from cystic fibrosis and I have never taught someone with this before. I am currently researcing this condition, and wondered whether any of you guys have ever taught someone who suffers from this. If so, any information or suggestions would be most welcome. Do you know anything that I should be aware of or prepared for? (for those of you who don't know what cf is, the sufferer produces huge amounts of mucus which can cause breathing problems if not treated with medication. Most sufferers are lucky to reach their early 30s).
