Children Assisted by Medical Technology in Educational Settings: Resources for Training. Project School Care.
Porter, Stephanie; And Others
This catalog was developed to help schools or health personnel train nurses, administrators, teachers, and aides in medical and technological aspects of serving children with complex medical conditions in the educational setting. The first chapter lists resources that document changes in medical care since 1980 and increases in the number of children being assisted by medical supports. It lists overview materials which contain useful information for community providers or administrators about demographic and medical trends which have both a local and a national impact. Chapter 2 identifies sources of information about relevant federal legislation and Supreme Court cases mandating educational services for children with disabilities. Chapter 3 comprises six sections and lists: manuals; information resources on universal precautions; materials on specific technologies (addressing nutrition and medication, elimination, respiration, and equipment); helpful materials for training community personnel; and information on financing and transportation. The last chapter lists state and national resource organizations that can provide support to school systems, individual providers, and families. A brief description of each organization's services is included. Within each section, the materials are listed in chronological order, with the most recent information first. (DB)
