This booklet provides a broad-based definition of the population of students with special health needs and offers information about specific subcategories of conditions.

The booklet discusses these students' unique educational needs. It includes information about model policies, programs, and practices that have improved the ability of school systems to provide effective programs. Family and student concerns are also addressed.
