An Annotated Bibliography of Identifying and Meeting the Needs of the Student with Chronic Health Problems.
Greenlee, Karen M.
A 56-citation review is presented of literature on chronic illness or chronic health problems in school-aged children, as well as policies connected with the medication a child may be taking for management of a physical condition. The initial section discusses the prevalence of chronic health problems, the psychological manifestations, the relationship of mainstreaming as it pertains to chronic health problems, and the relationship of health problems with school performance. A review is given of the ramifications of medication administration for school personnel. A general overview is presented of several chronic health problems, with special emphasis on what a teacher should know about the disease, its treatment, and how the child should adjust to the classroom. Problems discussed are: hemophilia, cancer, cardiovascular problems, vision problems, hearing problems, epilepsy, diabetes, allergy, asthma, weight problems, and nutritional problems. (JD)
