When your child is diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, you will have many questions. The first question you may ask is, “How can I help my child?”

Your child can live a full and successful life with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

We can help you start and then continue the conversation with your child about living with IBD, whether they are elementary school or graduating high school. Our education resources can help you and your child learn to manage all aspects of their illness.
