Overview

This text teaches pre-service special education teachers how to teach children with physical disabilities and health impairments (i.e., orthopedic impairments, visual impairments, deaf-blindness, etc.). Heller and her co-authors practically illustrate how to effectively monitor students' health, assist students in providing their own care, and intervene if significant health-related problems occur in the classroom. This text includes a wide variety of techniques for meeting the student's physical and health needs, including how to position the student for optimal instruction, lifting and handling procedures, feeding techniques, and how to work with health-related apparatus and medications.
