Linking Medicine & Education for the Child with Special Needs. What We Know...How We Teach. [Videotape].
This 34-minute videotape on meeting the special medical needs of children is intended for use in staff development with special educators, regular educators, and school nurses serving children with special health care needs in inclusive school settings. Emphasis is on linking "what we know" in the field of medicine to "how we teach" children with special health care needs. On the video, experts at the University of Nebraska Medical center review neuroscience, prenatal influences and prevention, developmental disabilities, medication and attention disorders, and the team approach to health care. Examples are given of how schools have included children with special health care needs into learning environments. Specific syndromes such as autism, Fragile X syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are featured. (DB)
