Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
LeComer, a special education evaluator of children who are suspected of having developmental disabilities, has amassed case studies of children with developmental delays, checklists, and hands-on advice for parents of children with autism, ADHD, aggressive behaviors, sensory processing disorders, motor control problems, and learning disabilities. The author makes the point that not every developmental delay leads to a disability and that when caught early, many developmental differences can be corrected. She shows parents how to identify their child's specific challenges and how to act swiftly to obtain early intervention and treatment. At the end of each chapter, readers will find special exercises for each developmental delay. Part 3 offers plans for taking action and getting professional treatment. Recommended for parents of children with developmental delays and all public libraries. Parents seeking to improve their children's social interactions and success should also consider Richard LaVoie's It's So Much Work To Be Your Friend.-Walter J.
