IDEAS for Kids

Although you may be the only person you know with an intestinal disease, it’s estimated 25% of Canadians suffer from some form of intestinal disease. At The North American Intestinal Disease Education & Awareness Society (IDEAS), we understand that intestinal disease is especially difficult for young people, who may be afraid to talk to their friends, parents, teachers or classmates about their health.

This website is designed to provide support, education and resources for children, teenagers and parents who are affected by intestinal disease. IDEAS believes in supporting the abilities of people with intestinal disease, and educating patients, their families and their communities through public events and resources like this website.

Each section of this site provides resources geared towards the needs of children, teens, or parents. We appreciate the hard work of all the other organizations and websites we link to, and hope you will too!

The North American Intestinal Disease Education & Awareness Society is a registered charity based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. IDEAS’ mission is to raise awareness of gastrointestinal diseases and disorders through education and public campaigns, with a focus on ability, rather than disability.

US Statistics on Intestinal Diseases

Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America

There are about 1.4 million people in the U.S. who have IBD, and at least 150,000 of them are under the age of 17.
About 30,000 new cases of Crohn’s and colitis are diagnosed each year
Most people diagnosed with Crohn’s disease are young, between the ages of 15 and 35
However, Crohn’s disease can also occur in people who are 70 or older and in young children as well. In fact, 10% of those affected—or an estimated 100,000—are under the age of 18
Males and females appear to be affected equally
More Caucasians than people from other racial groups develop ulcerative colitis
The disease tends to occur more often in Jews (largely of Eastern European ancestry) than in people of non-Jewish descent
Both Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are diseases found mainly in developed countries, more commonly in urban areas rather than rural ones, and more in northern climates than in southern ones.
Up to 20% of people with Crohn’s disease have a first-degree relative (first cousin or closer) with either Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. More…
