If you make any changes to these slides, please acknowledge that they are different from this vetted product and may no longer represent the viewpoint of the CDE. Other Health Impairment 3

    5 : Other Health Impairment (formerly under Physical Disability) Kathleen Patrick RN patrick_k@cde.state.co.us (303) 866-6779 OTHER HEALTH IMPAIRMENT 5
    6 : 6 2.08 (7) Other Health Impaired (OHI) means having limited strength, vitality, or alertness, including a heightened alertness to environmental stimuli, that results in limited alertness with respect to the educational environment due to a chronic or acute health problem, including but not limited to asthma, attention deficit disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, diabetes, epilepsy, a heart condition, hemophilia, leukemia, kidney disease, sickle cell anemia or Tourette syndrome. As a result of the child’s Other Health Impairment, as described above, the child is prevented from receiving reasonable educational benefit from general education, as evidenced by one or more of the following:
    7 : 7 2.08 (7) (a) Limited strength as indicated by an inability to perform typical tasks at school; 2.08 (7) (b) Limited vitality as indicated by an inability to sustain effort or to endure throughout an activity; and/or 2.08 (7) (c) Limited alertness as indicated by an inability to manage and maintain attention, to organize or attend, to prioritize environmental stimuli, including heightened alertness to environmental stimuli that results in limited alertness with respect to the educational environment.
    8 : May involve the following medical conditions: Asthma, attention deficit disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, diabetes, epilepsy, a heart condition, hemophilia, leukemia, kidney disease, sickle cell anemia or Tourette syndrome. The above conditions are not the only ones that may be considered. Being diagnosed with a health-related condition does not automatically qualify child as having an OHI. To Be Eligible as a Child with an Other Heath Impairment 8
    9 : If district requires a medical diagnosis to determine eligibility, it must be provided at no cost to parents. Alternative assessment measures administered by “qualified personnel” that meet standard evaluation procedures would be sufficient to establish OHI eligibility. Medical Diagnosis for Eligiblity 9
    10 : “Specially Designed Instruction" means adapting, as appropriate to the needs of an eligible child, the content, methodology or delivery of instruction to address the child's unique needs resulting from the disability and ensuring the child's access to the general curriculum so that he or she can meet the educational standards that apply to all children within jurisdiction of the public agency. 34 CFR 300.39 (b)(3).  It involves providing instruction that is different from that provided to children without disabilities, based upon the eligible child’s unique needs. Specially Designed Instruction 10
    11 : The disability must adversely affect educational performance and create a need for special educational services. It is critical to consider both academic and nonacademic skills and progress. (OHI): The Child Cannot Receive REB from General Education 11
    12 : Limited strength as indicated by an inability to perform typical tasks at school. Limited vitality as indicated by an inability to sustain effort or to endure throughout an activity. Limited alertness as indicated by an inability to manage and maintain attention, to organize or attend, to prioritize environmental stimuli, including heightened alertness to environmental stimuli that results in limited alertness with respect to the educational environment (OHI): The Child Cannot Receive REB from General Education 12
    13 : Limited strength as indicated by an inability to perform typical tasks at school Example: A child with Sickle Cell Anemia may have limited physical strength due to his or her condition and have difficulty with work output, mobility and fatigue especially during a crisis which can include pain and swelling in hands and feet, fever, gastric & respiratory problems. The child can also experience altered brain tissue perfusion that would cause loss of balance, altered gait, changes in behavior and academic performance and possible seizure activity. Limited Strength 13
    14 : Limited vitality as indicated by an inability to sustain effort or to endure throughout an activity Example: A child undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia may have frequent absences from school for doctor’s appointments and chemo/radiation therapy including bone marrow transplant. The child can have limited cognition and stamina to attend to his or her school work due to effects of treatments. Limited Vitality 14
    15 : Limited alertness as indicated by an inability to manage and maintain attention, to organize or attend, to prioritize environmental stimuli, including heightened alertness to environmental stimuli that results in limited alertness with respect to the educational environment. Example: A child with ADD/ADHD may have limited ability to attend to specific academic tasks because the disorder causes them to be overly alert to the general environment and causes them: to be distractible during academic instruction to have difficulty with organization to have difficulty paying attention and inability to focus to be impulsive and control behavior Limited Alertness 15
    16 : Factors to consider in an evaluation include, but are not limited to: Medical history including medication Type, degree, and severity of health impairment Current levels of performance – both academic and nonacademic Need for special education and related services Factors to Consider 16
    17 : A medical diagnosis alone is insufficient to determine eligibility for special education services. Teams should focus on presenting problems along with a comprehensive evaluation to determine the appropriate disability. Medically-based mental illness would be more accurately identified under the eligibility category of Serious Emotional Disability. Remember 17
    18 : Have a chronic or acute health condition. The health condition must cause limited strength, vitality or alertness due to chronic or acute health problem. Educational performance must be adversely affected by the health condition. The health condition must create a need for specially designed instruction. To Be Eligible as OHI, the Child Must Meet All Four Conditions 18
