Assessment Description Students with moderate to severe disabilities often have specific medical and health care needs. Teachers who work with students with moderate to severe disabilities will need to be aware of those needs and the details of how to ensure those needs are met at school with the help of support staff and service providers. Imagine you are the lead teacher for the students in the “Moderate to Severe Case Study” used in Topic 5. Your principal has approached you and asked that you create an informational digital presentation that can be shared with all school personnel prior to the start of the school year. Your goal is to create awareness about the medical and health care needs of students with moderate to severe disabilities in an effort to welcome and safeguard the students throughout the year and to foster a campus environment that is inclusive for these students. In a 12-15 slide digital presentation, address the following: Summarize six common medical/health care needs commonly present in students with moderate to severe disabilities. Identify three key building support staff members (paraprofessionals, school nurse, etc.) who typically work with students with moderate to severe disabilities and provide a description of the types of support each of these team members provide. Identify three related service providers (therapists, mobility and hearing specialists, etc.) who typically work with students with moderate to severe disabilities and provide a description of the types of support each of these team members provide. Explain three legal and/or ethical issues that may arise when working with students with medical or health care needs. Include an explanation of how each issue could be avoided and/or resolved. Suggest three strategies for ways that students with moderate to severe disabilities can be included and interact with their non-disabled peers. Include discussion about how encouraging this interaction promotes human value and dignity for all students and exemplifies the application of the tenets of the Christian worldview perspective. Describe three outside resources teachers can use to locate additional information about working with students with medical or health care needs. Include a title slide, reference slide, and presenter's notes. Support the assignment with a minimum of three scholarly resources. Refer to the resource, "Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentations," located in the Student Success Center, for additional guidance on completing this assignment in the appropriate style. While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
