Participation in telerobo school life, realized through cooperation among stakeholders (family, medical staff, school, and education agency)

Ms. K was able to participate in remote classes at a full-time general high school not only because of the cooperation of the school, but also because of the understanding of the Osaka Prefectural Board of Education, which has jurisdiction over the high school.Although there are guidelines from the government that remote class participation can be treated as attendance, the interpretation varies depending on the school.The people concerned respected Mr. K's desire to go to school and learn, and established a support system.This supported my participation in remote school life for about a year.

However, being discharged from the hospital and returning to school is not a “goal” but a new “start”.Contrary to the joy of being discharged from the hospital and returning to school, I was worried whether Mr. K himself would be able to live the same way as before.Although his one-year period of using kubi has now come to an end, iPresence will continue to support Mr. K, who thinks for himself and moves forward.
