National and state law now mandate that school professionals provide education and care for children with health and handicapping disorders. Health-Related Disorders in Children and Adolescents contains succinct, up-to-date reviews of 96 medical conditions that describe the educational, psychological, and behavioral challenges that those involved in the care of children must respond to. This volume covers many poorly understood disorders (like Laurence–Moon syndrome and Rett syndrome), as well as more commonly occurring ones (like ear infections, cerebral palsy, and sickle-cell anemia).

This volume is a resource for practitioners and medical professionals. Each chapter reviews the etiology of the disorder, which is followed by a section on the expected behavioral and physical outcomes. Next, authors describe psychoeducational implications and cover interventions that school psychologists, school-based professionals, and medical professionals can use to help ease the suffering of these children. The practical value of each chapter is enhanced by inclusion of an annotated bibliography, a list of resources for support organizations and information centers, and clear definitions for complex medical terminology. School personnel will also find this an invaluable resource and useful bibliographic tool to help educate parents on the problems their children are facing.

Written in an easy-to-understand style, and comprehensive in scope, this volume will be an invaluable resource for all school and local libraries, and for school psychologists, teachers, school counselors, social workers, psychiatrists, medical personnel, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physiotherapists-indeed anyone who works with children and adolescents afflicted with these complex health-related disorders.
