Adolescents impacted by migraines: A resource and workbook for supporting students who are impacted by migraines
Migraine is a common disorder in childhood and adolescents. The aim of this Applied Project was to create a handbook with workbook pages for educators, parents, and adolescents suffering migraines to highlight important characteristics and symptoms of migraine and thus provide strategies to minimize impacts on education. The handbook outlines how adolescents suffer from migraine headaches, associated behaviour impacts, and the role of educators, support staff, and counsellors as well as parents in providing help to adolescents. Schools can support students suffering from migraine headaches by setting educational standards based on the outcomes of students’ needs to improve achievement and performance. The project discusses how migraine and depression are interrelated, symptoms of migraine in adolescents, potential treatment, and migraine management in schools. Over-the-counter (OTC) medications have been beneficial for the migraine attack. Biofeedback is also another modality given to patients suffering from migraine headaches, helping them learn how to relax and use their brain to gain control over certain body functions that lead to stress and pain. These suggestions, along with personalized workbook pages, can be found in the project handbook in the Appendix section of this project.
