Case study describes a model of care used to accommodate a child with burns and significant compliance issues. This model included services provided by the medical and educational systems and extended from acute recovery through reintegration into the classroom. Educational reentry was facilitated by including a transitional period in a special-needs classroom in a freestanding special needs school. Funding for special educational services was obtained by identifying the child's eligibility under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
