Overview

In addition to providing the most comprehensive coverage of physical and health-related disabilities, this book also demonstrates how these disabilities effect the children and others around them. The author examines the lifelong educational implications of children and young adults with special physical and health needs in a way that is practical, informative, and applicable in today's schools. Both special and general education teachers will find the complete descriptions of each condition and the multitude of teaching tips extremely helpful. Specific intervention strategies for teachers and other helping professionals are presented for a variety of settings, with particular attention given to the general education classroom. Provides coverage of children with special needs and of children with normal conditions who develop health problems (cancer, eating disorders, fractures, etc.). Examines current American litigation, legislation, and relevant policies involving children with special physical and health care needs in addition to the importance of school-based policies that are well developed and appropriate for these children.
