Re: School with a brace
I had a brace quite a few years ago now but I asked for a large locker so that I could store my brace in there if I needed to take it off. All my teachers were aware of what was going on so if I needed to take a bit of extra time they were considerate.
You may also need help putting it on after sports - one of my teachers was 'trained' in putting the brace back on after sport!! You will get used to wearing it quickly and it will soon get easier. I think you'll find you are more robust with it on than off!!
