The first issue contains the following articles: (1) "Position Statement on Specialized Health Care Procedures," by the Council for Exceptional Children's Division on Physical and Health Disabilities that calls for all teachers to maintain a safe, healthy environment for their students and to view specialized health care procedures as self-help skills or independent living skills that students should be taught to promote their independence; (2) "Teaching Reading to Students with Severe Speech and Physical Impairments Using the Nonverbal Reading Approach" (Kathryn Wolff Heller and others); (3) "Vermont's Guidelines for Related Services: Supporting the Education of Students with Disabilities" (Michael F.
