Risk for Injury (1B)

Risk for injury occurs when the conditions in the environment (e.g. classroom lab) interact with a student's medical or physical impariment.
Students may be at risk of injury due to certain characteristics of their disability. Because of the nature of some disabilities, students may be unable to feel heat or cold, have seizures, brittle bones, or balance issues. Other students may be susceptible to profuse bleeding or may transmit infections through blood transfer.

Formal Diagnostics

A physician's diagnosis and instruction about a condition that could involve risk of injury would be necessary documentation.
