About this Book

Caring for Children with Special Healthcare Needs and Their Families: A Handbook for Healthcare Professionals provides a guide for addressing the challenges of providing optimal general and routine care for the special needs population.  More than just caring for the patients, the text stresses the importance of caring for their families as well.

The book begins with chapters on common aspects of this population, including physical or sensory disabilities and developmental and learning disabilities.  Subsequent chapters expound on more specific topics related to communication, mobility, emotional issues, quality of life, and end-of-life.
