    • Introduction
      • Wide variety of conditions and diseases: cerebral palsy, paralysis, epilepsy,, clubfoot, asthma, polio, diabetes, and allergies.
      • Some are congenital- present at birth, and other are acquired through disease or injury.
      • Physical health problems can have little or no effect on school performance and some do not require any special adaptations.
      • For the ones that do need special adaptations, it is necessary for the teacher to adapt their lesson in the areas needed such as mobility, communication, and basic skills.
      • Needs can be very different from student to student. One student with lower limb paralysis might be out going and active, whereas another may be shy.
      • Teachers need to promote independence. Set realistic expectations
      • The General Ed. Teacher can help Identify a physical impairment, provide referral, or take responsibility for the education of the student.
      • Teachers may need to provide additional instruction for students with frequent absences, modification of classroom, and adaptations of activities.
      • Because some students develop their disabilities after an accident or disease it is hard to make a single list of symptoms. (see handout)
      • Consider individual needs.
      • A frequent adaptation is mobility in the classroom.
      • Some students have trouble learning because of extensive absences, fatigue, learning problems, behavioral disorders, and intellectual disorders.
    • indicators
      • Social acceptance is often restricted.
      • Teachers should be aware of general health status of their students and take note of any changes.
      • There is an increasing number of students with extensive health problems that are entering the educational system.
      • With this movement , more students that are medically fragile ( use heart monitors, oxygen tanks) are being placed in the general ed. classrooms.
      • Teachers should participate in the IEP meetings so they are aware of the needs of their students.
    • Epilepsy
      What? – A disorder of the brain.
      • When nerve cells suddenly begin to fire together, a wave of electrical energy sweeps through the brain, causing a seizure.
      • -Seizures interfere with the brains normal functions. They cause a child to have a sudden change in consciousness, movement, or sensation.
      • -Seizure Disorder can be used interchangeably with epilepsy.
      • -Having one seizure doesn’t mean a person is epileptic. It must occur more than once and have an unknown cause.
      Types: Three types.
      Generalized Seizures- when the electrical disturbance involves the whole brain.
      Partial Seizure-s- When only part of the brain is affected.
      Partial Seizure Secondarily Generalized- Starts in one part then spreads.

    • Inclusion tips to prevent infection
      Roll out 2 paper towel sections. One to dry your hands the other to turn off the faucet.
      Turn on the faucet.
      Wet hands under water.
      Apply soap. Work up a generous lather.
      Rub hands in a circular motion covering all parts of the hand.
      Each area is to be rubbed with soap ten times for 10-30 seconds.
      Dry on the paper towel rolled out in the beginning.
      Discard in a receptacle.
      Turn off the faucet with the dry paper towel.
      Use the dry paper towel to open the door.
      If only hot air dryers are available, use a tissue or newspaper, or even clothing.
      • 0.9% of school population has a physical disability.
      • 10% of the students that receive special services have a physical disability.
      • Most common chronic illness is asthma.
      • 40 children per day are diagnosed with diabetes.
      • Cerebral Palsy is one of the most complex of all physical impairments because it results from brain damage.
      • Most students with physical impairment spend the majority of the day in the General Ed. Classroom.
      • Theodore Roosevelt had Asthma.
      Facts to Take Away
    • The students will have their left hand taped and will be given a cup with M&M’s inside. The students will attempt to pull the M&M’s out of the cup and then will be required to write a paragraph (with their taped hand) about what they learned from this activity, while they are writing they will be unexpectedly tossed a ball to catch.
