These services have been developed in different ways around the globe but the fundamentals are constant: the early detection, correction, prevention or amelioration of disease, disability and abuse from which school aged children can suffer.

Famous quotes containing the words services, school and/or health:

    It seems I impregnated Marge
    So I do rather feel, by and large,
    Some cash should be tendered
    For services rendered,
    But I can’t quite decide what to charge.
    Anonymous.

    For those parents from lower-class and minority communities ... [who] have had minimal experience in negotiating dominant, external institutions or have had negative and hostile contact with social service agencies, their initial approaches to the school are often overwhelming and difficult. Not only does the school feel like an alien environment with incomprehensible norms and structures, but the families often do not feel entitled to make demands or force disagreements.
    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)

    A comfortable house is a great source of happiness. It ranks immediately after health and a good conscience.
    Sydney Smith (1771–1845)
