Increasingly, children with significant medical issues are being incorporated into the general school environment. Given the potential effects of various disorders and conditions on educational prognosis, it is important for neuropsychologists, pediatric psychologists, school psychologists, teachers, and other professionals who are working with these children to be aware of the nature and course of these many disorders as well as the avenues for rehabilitation, accommodation, and classroom modification. In Children with Complex Medical Issues in Schools, Dr. Castillo bridges the gap between research and practice and provides a concise, yet thorough reference that covers a broad range of conditions, from high incidence disorders like epilepsy and meningitis, to those with less obvious neurological underpinnings like asthma and diabetes. Each chapter is written by clinicians with practical expertise with each disorder and includes: Case studies with results from neuropsychological evaluations to elicit understanding into how a student's school functioning may be affected by their medical history Recommendations for educational modifications and accommodations Data regarding morbidity and mortality rates, related medical issues, and common medical treatments Interventions for children with specific medical disorders, along with educational resources that may be accessed via the internet or through other literature

Anna was an exceptional exceptional child. Born with multiple medical conditions, she had eleven major surgeries before she was fifteen. Now, she's just fine. This book describes her surgeries and how they affected her emotional, cognitive and social development. It shows how we, her parents, worked with the educational system and private providers to meet her needs and describes the strategies we used to deal with her behavioral and learning differences. It includes samples of her academic work, excerpts from relevant neuropsychological assessments, descriptions of parental interventions and teaching strategies, rules of the road for raising a child with chronic health conditions, and a glossary. It was written for you - especially if you're a parent of a child with special needs, a medical professional who wants more insight into the lives of your patients, or a teacher who wants to look beyond the learning differences you see in your students. And it's as upbeat as Anna herself.
