  • Description: The new role for the general pediatrician, as the key clinician caring for and coordinating the care of children with special needs, is the exciting new role that will make pediatrics so much more rewarding as a specialty and the care of children with special needs more effective for the child. It has been pioneers such as Jim Perrin who have opened the doors to such a bright future. These pioneers in the holistic care of such children, recognized and revolutionized the general health service needs of children with special needs as similar among children with a wide variety of disorders. Haggerty offers a historical perspective on caring for children with special needs.
