The authors reflect on the effectiveness of teachers in dealing with students who are suffering meningitis in Great Britain. They stressed that the effect of perinatal illness on long-term cognitive development is evident in children born very preterm. They noticed that the effects of serious illness during the perinatal period and in infancy may only become evident during formal schooling when the increasingly complex demands of academic environment aggravate the subsisting conditions.
