Parents' Perspectives on Emergency Medical Services: What I Wish Professionals Knew

The Center for Learning and Leadership has developed a video to supplement this module. The video provides information from parents of children with disabilities and special health care needs about their experience with emergency personnel. It provides input from these parents about what worked well, what could have been improved, and information they wish all emergency personnel knew about handling emergencies involving children with disabilities and special health care needs.
