Handbook of Children with Special Health Care Needs Book Excerpt:

Children with chronic conditions, developmental disorders, and birth defects represent a sizeable minority of American children—as many as one in five. Often their families have financial or other issues limiting their access to appropriate care, thus limiting their adult prospects as well. Compounding the problem, many valuable resources concerning this population are difficult to access although they may be critical to the researchers, practitioners, and policymakers creating standards for quality care and services. In response, the Handbook of Children with Special Health Care Needs assembles research, applied, and policy perspectives reflecting the range of children’s problems requiring special services. Widely studied conditions (e.g., communication disorders, substance abuse) and those receiving lesser attention (e.g., tuberculosis) are covered, as are emerging ideas such as the “medical home” concept of continuity of care. Its interdisciplinary outlook makes the Handbook of Children with Special Health Care Needs a vital, forward-looking text for developmental psychologists, pediatricians, early childhood and special education researchers and practitioners, disability researchers, policymakers, and advocates, and providers for children with special health care needs.

Special Care Dentistry Book Excerpt:

Special Care Dentistry is that specialty of dentistry concerned with the oral health care of patients with special needs for whatever reason including those who are physically or mentally challenged. People are considered to have special health care needs if they have physical, developmental, mental, sensory, behavioural, cognitive or emotional impairment or a condition that requires medical management, health care intervention or use of specialized services or programs. People with special needs are most under served in our society. They have poorer oral hygiene, more dental diseases, more missing teeth, and more difficulties in obtaining dental care than other segments of the population. Health care for individuals with special health care needs requires specialized knowledge, increased awareness and attention, adaptation, and accommodative measures beyond what are considered routine.
