Around the world, too many young children experience developmental and health problems due to poverty, prematurity, low birth weight, infectious diseases, exposure to toxic substances, and other risk factors. Children with established disabilities, such as an autism spectrum disorder, motor disability, communication and language problem, behavior disorder, or hearing and vision impairments, also need early and swift support. For all of these children and their families, co-occurring environmental threats or limited caregiving abilities often further compromise growth and development.

The International Society on Early Intervention (ISEI), in collaboration with Brookes Publishing, is pooling contributions of specialists from many disciplines and countries to more effectively prevent or minimize the impact of these risk factors on children's lives. Interdisciplinary Clinical Assessment of Young Children with Developmental Disabilities is the first book in ISEI's important new book series.

With this easy-to-use resource, students and staff will learn how to implement Part C of IDEA, recognize the roles and responsibilities of service providers in promoting collaboration, and help families play pivotal
