This book exists for two primary reasons: the pressures on educators to address children's s medical issues in school settings and the rapid pace of news and information delivery, which often occurs despite safeguards for credibility and verifiability. Educators must make policy, differentiate instruction, provide educational accommodations, provide special education services, collaborate with families, and work with the community in response to children's s medical, physical, and psychological issues. However, educators often have little training, support, or information to address important pediatric issues. When faced with a medical question, many people turn to the Internet. Although much information from the Internet is high quality, much is not. This reference for school psychologists, counselors, administrators, and teachers is a concise and well-researched investigation into pediatric health issues. "Psychiatric Disorders" is divided into three sections: neuropsychiatric conditions affecting schoolchildren, psycho pharmacology, and dietary control and supplement use. The first section includes the psychiatric issues that receive the most media coverage and affect the most children and addresses the questions about psychiatric issues that educators often hear. These neuropsychiatric conditions include Tourette Disorder, bipolar/mood disorders, and separation anxiety disorder. The psycho pharmacology section discusses the use of atypical antipsychotics and autism, treating tardive dyskinesia in children, medical management of ADHD, polypharmacy prescription practice, and side effects of common health medications. The dietary control and supplement use section includes dietary treatments for autism, identification and treatment of eating disorders, and use of steroids in adolescence. Each chapter includes a literature review based on the latest and best scientific research, a case study, and parent handouts. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
