Book Description

Children and kids spend more time at school than anywhere else except home; thus; schools can have a major effect on a kid’s health by providing a healthy physical environment; serving meals and snacks built around sound nutritional guidelines; and teaching about health; as well as promoting and modeling healthy behaviors. School health services programs involve not only school nurses and focus not only on nursing standards;practice; and performance issues; they also include services and classes to teach school students the information and skills they need to become health-literate; to maintain and improve their health; to prevent disease; and to reduce risky behaviors impacting health. School teachers; nurses; administrators; guidance counselors; health coordinators; and social workers all join with parents in safeguarding and promoting the health and well-being of school-aged children as a basic foundation for academic success. The Encyclopedia of School Health offers quick access to wellness and health information most relevant to children in United States of America’s K-12 school setting. You will find valuable guidance on developmental stages; acute and chronic illnesses; nutrition; special education; crisis response; prevention; and more.
