The school experiences of young people with sickle cell and thalassaemia are not well understood in the UK and ill-researched. In an ESRC-funded programme of research, Professor Simon Dyson at De Montfort University looked into a number of essential questions. In this presentation (number 5 of 6) Professor Dyson explains the experiences of young people within schools and their strategies for navigating school and life more broadly. The perspectives of schools, local authorities and health care professions are also taken into consideration.
The outputs of his research can be found in a number of lectures and publications. Six lectures can be found on this site available as narrated presentations, slide copies and as podcasts.
