Working Towards Independence by Janet Carr

Book Description

'If there were a bestseller list for practical books relating to behavioural methods of teaching people with learning disabilities, then the works of Janet Carr would justifiably occupy the top places. At a time when more people with learning disabilities are living in the community and access to personnel trained in psychological approaches to care is scanty, [this book] is welcome and needed. I'm sure that I'll be recommending it to carers for many years to come.' - Nursing Standard 'The theory is explained in simple jargon-free terms and is made very digestible by the numerous practical examples provided throughout. The book is clearly laid out, well organised and very readable.' - Communication 'This publication must surely be of great help to everyone involved in this specialised field.' - Disability News The authors describe, in non-technical language, the application of behavioural psychology to the teaching, care and development of adults with learning disabilities. It is the first text which provides both a theoretical background and well described examples for practical, hands-on work specifically with adults. Most chapters end with questions that can be used to help readers revise what they have read or to act as the basis for discussion. The appendices include possible answers to the questions, and lists of useful resources and references.
