Smith, Pamela D.; Leatherby, Jennifer L.
These guidelines are intended to help educators and other school personnel in Kentucky better manage the inclusion of students who require health services in either special or regular educational settings. The brief manual has sections which address: definitions; related Kentucky regulations; results of a statewide survey on personnel, qualifications, and policies regarding delivery of health services in classrooms; belief statements; placement and Individualized Education Program development; provision of related services; training of unlicensed school personnel to perform special health care procedures; emergency procedures; and transportation issues. Much of the document is comprised of 12 appendices which include: recommendations for dealing with specific health care procedures; guidelines for developing appropriate individual education programs for students with special health care needs; sample letters and forms; information on preventing transmission of communicable diseases; and listings of local health departments and home health coordinators, national resources and information centers, and related statewide training projects and materials. There are 14 references and an annotated bibliography of 88 related documents and readings. (DB)
