"In this presentation, Barb covers various stages of growth and development from the six- to the 18-year-old. It includes a helpful discussion of the "teen-age" brain, which undergoes a major transformation between the ages of 13 and twenty-five. A conversation about mirror neurons helps explain why a kid who bullies becomes an adult who bullies and is most likely to have been raised by a person who bullied, why child abusers beget child abusers, and the theory that autistic children have "broken" mirrors. In addition, she covers the assessment of various clinical conditions that school nurses may encounter—sore throats, abdominal pain, head injuries, signs and symptoms of child abuse, kids with celiac disease, mono, respiratory conditions including the common causes of cough in kids, evaluating the child with asthma, pneumonia, allergic rhinitis, abdominal pain, hypo and hyperglycemia, allergic reactions, and recognizing partial complex seizures (the most common seizure disorder in the world, and the least diagnosed). Barb will also discuss normal vital signs—weight, BP, pulses and respirations and various conditions that change the normal parameters." -- Barb Bancroft website.
