Infant Development and Risk: An Introduction
Paul H. Brookes Pub., 1997 - Social Science - 358 pages
Professors who seek a comprehensive, quality introduction to working with infants at risk for developmental delays need look no further. Interdisciplinary and accessible, this stimulating textbook imparts the knowledge that is essential for accurate identification and appropriate early intervention. Designed as an introductory text, this book provides a comprehensive overview of typical and atypical development while it explains key assessment issues and intervention programs. Real-life case studies demonstrate state-of-the-art intervention techniques and offer a first-hand perspective on identifying babies who have or are at risk for disabilities. Students in the fields of child development, human services, psychology, and nursing will find definitions, descriptions, and helpful advice on risk factors, screening and assessment, early intervention programs and techniques, collaborating with team members, legal mandates, IEPs and IFSPs, and working with families. Dealing head-on with complex and sensitive subjects like eligibility criteria and ethics in the NICU, this text explores some of the most vital issues in the field of early intervention. A revised and updated edition, it is a most valuable addition to every instructor's and students's shelf.
