Abstract

Multiple and complex health, social, and environmental factors threaten the school success of children living with HIV. Little is known about interventions to overcome these threats to school success. We aimed to identify the number and types of recommendations from hospital-generated neurodevelopmental exams and school-generated evaluations, Individual Education Plans (IEP), and 504 Plans for adaptations in the classroom for students with HIV infection. We also compared recommendations suggested by both neurodevelopmental exams and IEPs or 504 Plans. Data were derived from the clinic records of 31 school-age children. Content analysis yielded 358 recommendations in 11 categories. Findings highlighted a lack of communication between the clinic and schools.
