Nursery or playschool should have defused his mother's initial fears of letting other people look after her child - and her child's bleeding disorder.
This earlier informal education makes the start of primary schooling easier. Parents will have confidence that their son is able to cope for short periods of time without them.

They will know that he can be trusted to the care of others. The boy is used to the discipline of structured play with other children, and will have survived more than one scrap. Before that first day his parents should have made sure that the teachers are both aware of his haemophilia, and are comfortable with the diagnosis. This can only happen if they have up-to date information from the family and from the haemophilia centre. All teachers are used to coping with a wide range of disorders at school. For instance, asthma, diabetes and epilepsy are all more common than haemophilia.
It really takes an awful lot to faze the average teacher! But they do need that up-to-date briefing, and they need to know what to do if Tom presents them with a problem. The best way I have found to do this is to give a personal letter about the child to his parents. They then take the letter when they go to see the teachers. The message is clear.
They, the parents, are in control of all decisions taken about their son. A typical letter is shown in the box. It sets the scene for progress by emphasising normality, and stressing the things the boy is able to do with his friends. It starts with some personal details about him.
The diagnosis is then given and the fact that usual first aid measures apply is stressed. This is important because all teachers have knowledge of first aid and will be reassured; they don't have to learn anything new.
Some people still think that boys with haemophilia are likely to collapse in pools of blood and spoil the carpet, and the knowledge that most bleeds are internal is important. Because of this the teachers will need to know how to spot bleeds. The knowledge that the boy himself can tell when he is bleeding before there is anything to see will also be reassuring to them. Silly though it seems, some people also think that haemophilia can be caught.

Teachers need to be told that it is not contagious and cannot affect other children, if only to reassure their parents. A very important part of the letter is to explain who to contact should any problems arise, and how to do this. I append a card with the names of staff and telephone numbers to the introductory letter. In this way contact can be made directly with the centre if a parent is not available either at home or on a telephone pager.
In the UK families with haemophilic children under the age of 16 years can benefit from a valuable free service called "Armourpage", which is sponsored by the Armour Pharmaceutical Company in association with B. The next section of the letter deals with activities and sports and again stresses normality.
Normal development depends on continuing exploration of the world. Only the individual can eventually decide what is right for him in terms of work and leisure. Unnecessary restrictions hinder this progress. Children wanting to do the same things as their friends will eventually either reject restrictions directly, or hide the fact they are disobeying their parents in order to avoid retribution.
Far better to let them learn within sensible limits what is right for them and for their haemophilia. The only restrictions I recommend are that boys should not box or play rugby football, and the letter explains why. Finally, I ask to be kept up to date with the boy's progress. This is because I want to make sure that decisions which could affect his future and which are unduly influenced by the diagnosis are not taken at school.
In addition to the letter and the card, Haemophilia Society literature about schooling is helpful, as are some of the leaflets now available from the pharmaceutical companies. Occasionally either the parents or the teachers ask for all this information to be followed up by a visit to the school by a member of the centre staff. This can be extremely helpful if there are special difficulties, for instance the presence of high titre inhibitors. Nowadays the great majority of boys with haemophilia can attend normal school and compete as equals with their peers. It is not very long ago that this was not the case, and in some countries it is still more usual for special schooling to be recommended for haemophilia.
