Description - Development and Disabilities by Robert M. Hodapp

Development and Disabilities offers the first "multi-disability" developmental approach to children with mental retardation, deafness, blindness and motor impairments. The book is divided into three sections. Section 1 describes the organismic and contextual aspects of modern-day developmental approaches, along with such historical precursors as Werner, Piaget, and Vygotsky. Section 2 examines the most interesting aspects of development in each of the four disabilities. For each of these disabilities, the author describes studies related to child development, mother-child interaction, and family work. Section 3 draws theoretical and applied implications from these disabilities. The book notes both similarities and differences in development across disabilities, with the aim of better research and intervention. This book will be of interest to a wide range of researchers and practitioners concerned with the development of children with disabilities.
