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.
"The accessible format delivers a concise overview and research summary of each topic, followed by specific examples and practical educational strategies."
"Outstanding on multiple levels. It is a quick read for busy pre-practitioners and practitioners who are increasingly in need of accurate and current information regarding children's health issues. The book also presents thought-provoking questions for professional growth or group discussions. The handouts afford the reader a unique mechanism for sharing the book's contents with parents and colleagues."
"Addresses a number of childhood health issues (e.g., ear infections, HIV) and their implications for education. The book provides fascinating coverage of currently debated topics such as sleep problems, obesity, Lyme disease, and vaccination. The vaccination chapter alone would make this book worthwhile: The discussion about whether or not to vaccinate children makes compelling reading as it leads us through the facts and myths surrounding those decisions."
