Home and hospital teaching (HHT) provides educational continuity to students who are unable to attend their usual school of enrollment due to an emotional disability, physical illness or chronic illness. To qualify, the student must provide a statement from a relevant doctor stating why the condition prevents the student from attending school, and for how long. Project HEAL (Health, Education, Advocacy, and Law) has created a fact sheet about home and hospital teaching in Maryland.
