'This three-volume set is the first to comprehensively address the needs of educators in understanding and treating pediatric conditions in school settings. The editors have invited many of the top scientists in their respective areas to succinctly summarize research findings that are most relevant for school professionals. The three volumes cover a plethora of pediatric conditions and health care topics ranging from chronic illnesses (e.g., asthma) to neuropsychiatric disorders (e.g., autism) to prevention and wellness intervention to controversial and hot topics (e.g., steroid use by adolescents and use of multiple psychotropic drugs in the absence of controlled trials). The editors and chapter authors deliver well-written, interesting, and concise chapters that focus on educational implications and school-based strategies that directly translate research into practice.'ùGeorge J.

"The three volumes represent a unique contribution to improving the way schools respond to the medical needs of students. In a highly readable format, each chapter addresses a different medical issue or condition, describes the most up-to-date research in that particular area, and gives practical suggestions about how each issue affects learning and the strategies that might best help the children and families coping with these conditions.This is an excellent resource for educators, school mental health professionals, and parents—a place to get reliable information about medical issues, their implications for learning, and strategies for addressing them in schools—all in an extremely readable and usable format."
