Special Needs Healthcare

If a child has asthma, allergies, diabetes, seizures, attention deficit disorder, or any other condition requiring special health services in the school and/or is assisted with medical technology, etc., it is vital that the parent meet with the school nurse and develop an Individual Health Care Plan prior to school entry.  Physician's orders for care in school will need to be shared with the school nurse.

For complex care requiring a team approach, a team meeting before school entry is recommended with the goal that services are in place prior to the start of school so the child is ready to learn.
