Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The ability to communicate effectively is critical to the happiness of all children but may be particularly challenging for a child with Down Syndrome. This work, an excellent supplement to a previous compilation, Babies with Down Syndrome (Woodbine House, 1986), focuses specifically on how parents can maximize the communication skills of a child with Down Syndrome. Speech and language pathologist Kumin traces the development of communication skills from infancy through early adolescence, describing the problems that might arise during each stage and suggesting a wide range of home-based activities to help. Also discussed are the formal and informal methods of evaluating a child's communication ability, the interpretation of test results, and the range of professional services available. Each chapter concludes with an excellent annotated resource guide. This comprehensive and supportive text is highly recommended for parenting and health collections.-- Linda Cullum, Lake Superior State Univ. Lib., Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.
