Because learning should have no limitations

   I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning to sail my ship.
- Aeschylus

An estimated 4.4 million chronically ill children experience some disruption to school because of their illness. AECMN strives to serve the unique needs of students with health impairments through raising awareness of their educational challenges, collaboration with like minded professionals, and partnering with similar local and national organizations. This non-profit organization supports equal access to educational opportunities for children whose medical condition impacts their learning experience. It is the mission of AECMN to advocate for the delivery of appropriate education for these children and identify best practices of teaching students with medical needs.
