Abstract and Keywords
The prevalence of chronic medical conditions in children has nearly doubled in the last several decades. Both Division 16 of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) advocate that school psychologists play a primary role in consulting and collaborating with other professionals for the health and wellness of children. It is imperative that school psychologists look beyond assessment and general academic functioning in the service provision for such children, and instead encourage prevention, early diagnosis, and health promotion. This chapter provides specific recommendations for such services related to the pediatric health issues of childhood obesity, prenatal cocaine exposure, and lead exposure.
