Description & Coverage
Description:

While governing bodies have mandated that all students have the right to an education, with disabled students treated to the same rights and opportunities as non-disabled students, policymakers do not always agree on what all-inclusive education should look like.

Challenges Surrounding the Education of Children with Chronic Diseases explores the needs that children with certain conditions—such as diabetes, cancer, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease—might have in the classroom. Featuring coverage on a wide range of topics relating to pre-service teacher training, school administrators’ policies, and the experiences of children with chronic health conditions, this book is an essential reference source for teachers, educators, school administrators, policymakers, and anyone else concerned with inclusive educational rights for all students.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • ADHD
  • Diabetes
  • Inclusive Education
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
  • Parent Involvement in Education
  • Pediatric Patients
  • Pre-Service Teacher Training
  • Special Needs Advocacy
