Description - Children with Down Syndrome by Dante Cicchetti

The underlying theme of this book is that children with Down syndrome, despite their constitutional anomalies and their additional medical problems, can be understood from a normative developmental framework. The contributions, all of which are based on the latest theories and research, demonstrate that the application of a developmental perspective to the study of young children with Down syndrome sheds light on the universality of ontogenetic sequences, stages, and structures, and highlights the respective roles of biological, perceptual-cognitive, linguistic, social, and emotional factors in the developmental process. Finally, it is shown that the application of a developmental perspective will suggest age and stage-appropriate interventions for Down syndrome children and their families. This will be a suitable book for psychologists, psychiatrists, special education teachers, pediatricians, and other medical researchers interested in Down syndrome and mental retardation, as well as graduate students in these areas.
