lives in their schools and communities.
Support may include:
Assessing the needs of a child
Developing individualized Health Care Plans to
guide staff in caring for students in the classroom environment who have
complex health needs
Training support staff to provide direct care to
Supporting students in accessing and
participating in the school environment
Students are eligible for this service when they have health care
needs or physical disabilities. Referral for service can be made through
School-Based Team and/or nurse.
