Children with mitochondrial disease (mito) often benefit from additional support at school and often the first time teachers hear about mito is when a child in their school is diagnosed. The Mito Foundation resources can help parents, carers and teachers support a child throughout their school journey.

Resources available include information sheets, templates and activities to help a child's school journey.

If you need any assistance or someone to talk to, contact our Helpline. Call 1300 977 180 or submit a Helpline request form.

Our resources will provide you with the tools and knowledge to support your child throughout their school journey
