This book would sit nicely on a shelf in the office of a professional in Education, Psychology or Psychiatry. It would save the individual time in having to gather up the information it holds from other sources, and if a detail was forgotten or needed quickly referencing it would be there to hand
A solid knowledge and understanding of child development is central to child mental health assessment and interventions. Although developmental disabilities are common among children with mental health problems, there have been a surprisingly limited number of texts for practitioners. This refreshing book covers this training gap by linking evidence with practice on a range of specific and general types of developmental delays across the spectrum of childhood and young life. A wealth of suggestions on improving clinical skills is complemented by rich case material, and will be of great interest to practitioners of health, social care and educational background.
