January 1 2011 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.

Managing Emergency Events and Drills at School
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art70183.asp
Emergencies at school may affect children with disabilities, developmental delays, or chronic health conditions more seriously than their mainstream peers, especially during evacuations or sheltering in place. Even emergency drills may pose risks to those who require monitoring, meals and insulin for diabetes or treatment for other chronic health conditions.
