On a positive note, my sons public high school had a small article in their newsletter emailled last week with a link to the scoliosis brochure. That is a win!

My daughter was diagnosed in August 2013 with scoliosis. She was in yr7 at school. After researching and finding out about the history of school assessment I then went to the principal of her school and requested that information be put in the newsletter. Also I discovered that in the baby health book that we receive when our children are born there is a scoliosis assessment in the ten to twelve year old health check. I know that it is up to parents to manage our children's health but honestly how many people carry out these health checks. It seems that the onus is then taken off the health department. I am sure that there would be more parents checking if they only knew the statistics.
