The child with a disability

£7.99

Product description

This text covers the diagnosis and care of children with disabilities and the scientific basis of developmental paediatrics. It is also a useful source of detailed medical data on the numerous varieties of childhood disability.;This book has evolved from the original "The Handicapped Child" by Dr Grace Wood which was first published in 1976. That book established itself as a bench mark in paediatrics and has now been revised twice by Professor David Hall. In this latest edition, the title has been modified to reflect the changing terminology in this area, and Professor Hall has added a new chapter on educational underachievement. The nature of intelligence, developmental psychology and linguistics and their relevance to clinical work are discussed, and the importance of communication with parents is emphasized throughout.;As a synthesis of basic science and clinical practice, the book presents a logical approach to developmental paediatrics which should appeal not only to doctors, but also to workers in related fields, such as educational and clinical psychologists, therapists and social workers. In very good condition.
