Macdonald, Sarah; Ruane, Margaret A.; Kimball, Eve
Exceptional Parent, v38 n2 p50-53 Feb 2008
This article presents the fifth part in the 12 installment Medical Home series that presents the experiences of a fictitious couple, Amita and Samir, as they learn to adapt to the reality of having a premature baby with special needs. It describes how Amita and Samir begin preparation for their daughter Anjali's enrollment in kindergarten. "EP" readers will learn about Medical Home through their experiences. A "Medical Home" is not a building. It is an approach to providing healthcare services to children with special healthcare needs. [For Part Four, see EJ781326.]
