Development and Disabilities offers a 'multi-disability' developmental approach to children with mental retardation, deafness, blindness and motor impairments. The book is divided into three sections. Part I describes the organismic and contextual aspects of modern-day developmental approaches, along with such historical precursors as Werner, Piaget, and Vygotsky. Part II then examines the most interesting aspects of development in each of the four disabilities. For each disability, studies are described that explore the child's development, mother-child interaction, and family work. Part III then draws theoretical and applied implications from these four disabilities. Both similarities and differences are noted in development across disabilities, with the aim of better research and intervention. This book should be of interest to a wide range of researchers and practitioners interested in the development of children with disabilities.
