Now in its fifth edition, this outstanding resource for teachers and school professionals has been retitled Medical and Psychosocial Problems in the Classroom, to more accurately reflect what teachers encounter during the course of their careers. Each chapter highlights the important role teachers play when interacting with health-care teams to identify students with potentially serious disorders or working with those professionals to enhance the student’s learning in the classroom. For example:
Medical and Psychosocial Problems in the Classroom is for teachers of both general and special education classes, for pre-service and in-service education for the novice and the experienced teacher, and for school administrators seeking to better serve the students in their care. This book will alert readers to the existence of various medical and psychosocial problems encountered in the classroom, especially those conditions affecting learning and behavior, and to the important role the educator plays in the diagnosis and/or management of medical and psychosocial problems of students.
