In today's inclusive classrooms, educators encounter students with a wide range of medical needs -- from asthma and ADHD to diabetes and depression.

This easy-to-read guide gives educators, guidance counselors, and school nurses the latest information on how students' medical conditions and their treatments directly affect their classroom behavior and learning ability. Along with the most up-to-date research, readers will get tips on creating successful learning environments such as how to physically modify their classrooms to accommodate special needs, communicate with medical professionals to share their insight on students' conditions, and collaborate with families.

With extensive lists of contacts and resources, appendices, and a mini drug reference, this book will become an indispensable reference for all teachers to use in their classrooms, year after year.
