Teachers may need to access information about specific medical conditions and/or disabilities to better understand the learning needs of some students. The critical information for teachers to know is how the condition and/or disability might impact a student’s learning and social/emotional needs in the classroom. Understanding these implications will help teachers provide the right kinds of strategies and supports to meet students’ specific needs.
Some students may have two or more different medical conditions and/or disabilities. It is important to consider the related information as a whole.
