Module 2 – Lesson 1, Part 2: Pediatric Self-Assessment Answer 1

Question

What does a life care planner need to consider when creating a life care plan for a child as opposed to creating one for an adult?

Answer

The life care planner should consider the family’s response to development and transitions as well as long-term living options for a child with a disability. Refer to pages 62-64 of the Pediatric Life Care Planning and Case Management book for additional information.
