Collaborative Consultation to Support Children with Pediatric Health Issues: A Review of the Biopsychoeducational Model
Grier, Betsy Chesno; Bradley-Klug, Kathy L.
Journal of Educational & Psychological Consultation, v21 n2 p88-105 2011
Medical technology continues to improve, increasing life expectancies and capabilities of children with chronic illnesses and disabilities. Pediatric health issues have an impact on children's academic, emotional, behavioral, and social functioning. This article reviews a consultative Biopsychoeducational Model, based on a problem-solving process, for working with children affected by health issues within the school setting. Facilitated by the school psychologist, this model promotes communication and collaboration among family members, educators, and medical professionals. The goal is to aid in the often complex assessment of strengths and weaknesses of children with health issues and to help design and evaluate effective interventions for these children. Potential roadblocks in implementation and possible solutions are discussed. (Contains 1 figure.)
