Educating Children with Life-Limiting Conditions supports teachers who are working with children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions in mainstream schools by providing them with the core knowledge and skills that underpin effective practice within a whole-school and cross-agency approach.

Mainstream schools now include increasing numbers of children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, and this accessible book is written by a team comprised of both education and health professionals, helping to bridge the gap between different services.

Recognising the complexity of individual cases, the authors communicate key principles relating to the importance of communication, multi-professional understanding and working and proactive planning for meeting the needs of any child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition that can be applied to a range of situations.

Reflective activities and practical resources are provided and are also available to download. This bookwill be of interest to teachers in mainstream schools, as well as teachers, SENCOs and senior leaders in all school settings, school nurses, children’s nurses and allied health professionals.
