Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book is not, and does not, claim to be a scholarly treatise, but it will be useful to many service providers interested in improving their clinical skills in the area of ID.” (Journal of Policy and Practice in Intellectual Disabilities, 1 December 2012)

"I enjoyed reading this book. The book is a useful guide for all professionals working with people with ID, and is likely to be particularly valuable for psychiatric trainees attempting to pass examinations such as the membership examination of the Royal College of Psychiatrists." (Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, 2010)
