Description

Educators often face the pressure to address children's medical needs within the school setting, but sometimes find themselves having to make difficult decisions without adequate training, support, or information about important pediatric issues. When faced with a medical question, many may turn to the Internet where information is sometimes reliable, sometimes not. This concise and well-researched investigation into pediatric health issues provides credibility and verifiability of data and establishes a foundation of confidence for any educator who must make policy, differentiate instruction, provide educational accommodations, offer special education services, collaborate with families, and work with the community to serve to children's medical, physical, and psychological needs. Written for school psychologists, counsellors, administrators, and teachers, this highly practical and easy-to-understand reference explores childhood immunizations and describes common childhood ailments, such as otitis media, Tourette syndrome, bacterial meningitis, and Lyme disease. This book discusses behavioural issues that may manifest themselves in classrooms as well as treatment options and intervention strategies. Each chapter includes a case study, parent handouts, and a literature review based on the latest and most reliable scientific research.
