Featuring the most current information on the physical, health, and multiple disabilities that are most commonly encountered in the school setting, Understanding Physical, Health, and Multiple Disabilites, second edition, provides students a thorough understanding of a wide range of disabilities and their educational implications.  Unlike any other characteristic book, this book has "knowledge to practice" chapters that provide practical information related to the various sections of the book (e.g., section on neuromotor impairments has a "knowledge to practice" chapter on assistive technology considerations, section on terminal illnesses has a "knowledge to practice" chapter on coping with degenerative and terminal illness).
