Small Steps Forward: Using Games and Activities to Help Your Pre-school Child with Special Needs

Front Cover
J. Kingsley Publishers, 1999 - Education - 256 pages
Sarah Newman divides skills into six areas--cognitive, linguistic, physical, sensory, social and emotional--for convenient reference. She deals with general issues, such as behaviour management, toilet-training and sleep management, which may be encountered by parents of children with any form of disability--physical, learning or sensory. She provides an outline of child development so that parents can place their child's progress in context. Advice on coping with the stress of having a child with special needs, and information on support parents can expect from health, education and social services, is also given. The author includes a comprehensive resources section which incorporates a bibliography and list of useful addresses.
