Description - Caring for Children With Neurodevelopmental Disabilities and Their Families by Claudia Maria Vargas

Children with neurodevelopmental disabilities such as mental retardation or autism present multiple challenges to their families, health care providers, and teachers. Professionals consulted by desperate parents often see the problems from their own angle only and diagnosis and intervention efforts wind up fragmented and ineffective. This book presents a model multidisciplinary approach to care, family-centered and collaborative, that has proven effective in practice. A pillar of the approach is recognition of the importance of performing culturally competent assessment and adjusting service delivery so that it is responsive to cultural differences. Detailed case stories illuminate the ways in which the approach can help children with different backgrounds and different disabilities. Most chapters include, besides references, study questions, lists of resources, and glossaries to facilitate easy comprehension by professionals with different backgrounds--in special education, communication sciences and disorders, clinical and counseling psychology, neuropsychology and psychiatry, social work, pediatrics-- and program administrators as well as students, trainees and educated parents.
