Overcoming Barriers is a CD-ROM compilation for all concerned with disability. It incorporates the full text and references of eighteen recently published Cambridge University Press books in the areas of psychological and neurological disability. Cambridge is well-known in the clinical and academic communities as the publisher of innovative and authoritative texts, references and journals in the field of disability. With journals such as Development and Psychopathology, and Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry and Allied Disciplines, and books authored by clinical academics on the order of Edward Zigler, Dante Cicchetti, Richard Gregory, and Uta Frith, the research and professional communities look to Cambridge to set the standard in this area of publishing. With Overcoming Barriers, we break new ground in providing for the information needs of disability specialists. Autism, language and learning disorders, Down syndrome, and deafness in childhood and adolescence are among the common and multi-faceted conditions surveyed in this important electronic resource. This CD-ROM is a cost-effective way of building a library in disability research and practice. Comprehensively indexed and fully searchable, it will complement the books and journals already available in the departmental or individual library, offering rapid access to the best available information on the subject.
