This textbook provides the reader with an insight into the needs of children with both physical and learning disabilities, particularly within an acute care setting. It considers the principles that underpin the fundamental aspects of care delivery to children with special needs. The key areas of knowledge and practical skills covered include:

  • the social and historical context

  • challenging assumptions

  • best practice for giving news to parents

  • communication methods

  • play and movement

  • nutrition and feeding

  • boundary setting

  • respite care

  • transitions into adult services.
