I've gone to school with some of my clients. I rode the bus with them and did all their nursing care. My primary focus was to keep them safe, and as healthy as possible. Under the direction of the teacher, I also helped with their therapy at school.
That's where I learned about Little Rooms to stimulate special needs kids, so they can learn to reach out and touch things, learn about cause & effect, and interact more with their environment. I learned more ways to do oral stimulation, used to help kids learn to use their tongue more, to swallow more effectively, to form more sounds, etc. I learned more effective ways to do range of motion, and better ways to position them to help them improve their muscle control. I learned how to use different equipment, like standers, side-liers, & therapy balls. I could go on; it can be a very interesting environment.
I've also gone to school with kids who have physical problems, but no mental or emotional issues. In that case, I might be in the back of the room where I can keep an eye on her, but I only intervene with a physical problem (trach or vent, usually).
I'm an RN, but either an RN or an LPN could do this. Sometimes, - especially when the child has private insurance - the LPN is preferred.
