This volume looks at the physical, mental and emotional development of children with varying degrees of learning disabilities through tracing the development of six young adults from childhood. The case studies are in the form of illuminating commentaries from the parents and provide extra insight into the children's everyday lives. Each chapter also looks at education and schooling in detail, as well as acknowledging the importance of support outside of the family nucleus.
