Development and Disabilities: Intellectual, Sensory and Motor Impairments / Edition 1by Robert M. Hodapp
Pub. Date: 09/28/2013
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Development and Disabilities offers the first 'multi-disability' approach to children with mental retardation, deafness, blindness and motor impairments. After describing 'development' as both the child's own advances and changes-interactions with parents and families, this book examines the most exciting research on the development of children with these four disabilities. The final section then draws together these diverse findings, showing how development in mental retardation, deafness, blindness, and motor impairments is both 'the same and different', leading to important implications for researchers, family members, and practitioners.
