Approximately one in five schoolchildren presents with a special healthcare need. Schools are tasked with providing free and appropriate education to all students, which may include both accommodations and specialized services to children to address challenges associated with their medical conditions. The first chapter of this book provides a brief overview of types of presenting conditions, challenges, and considerations that school-based providers may encounter when working with this population of students. The chapter includes a table of common medical terms, procedures, and treatments. Several case examples with accompanying discussions are described to illustrate common themes, challenges, and considerations that students with chronic medical conditions may encounter in the school setting. Finally, the role of culture in the symptom presentation, treatment, and education of students with chronic health needs is discussed.
