- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after January 30, 2022
First published in 1986, Handicapping Conditions in Children provides an accessible overview of a wide range of handicapping conditions and their remediation, and gives a balanced perspective on the medical, educational and social issues. It will therefore be of value to a wide audience in these professions as well as to students and parents. Each chapter deals with one specific area but is presented to cover: description of the condition and its aetiology; its prevalence in the population and relatives; developmental characteristics; special problems and needs; educational and social provision; the potential for the future; and further reading lists. The book does not include every possible condition, but concentrates on those that are most frequent or problematic.
This book is a reissue originally published in 1986. The language used is a reflection of its era and no offence is meant by the Publishers to any reader by this republication
