This volume looks at the physical, mental and emotional development of children with varying degrees of learning disabilities through tracing the development of six young adults from childhood. The case studies are in the form of illuminating commentaries from the parents and provide extra insight into the children's everyday lives. Each chapter also looks at education and schooling in detail, as well as acknowledging the importance of support outside of the family nucleus.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Each of the authors featured has published papers and books for the academic and clinical communities; the present volumes, however, are specifically aimed at parents. The intent is not to convince but to inform the reader. Rather than offering solutions, we are describing, explaining, and discussing the problems that parents meet while bringing up their children, from infancy through to adulthood.

'We try to provide portraits of the various stages in the child’s cognitive, intellectual, and emotional development and how these unfolding stages affect not only the child’s experience of himself, but also how he perceives and relates to the world in which he lives. Our hope is that establishing this context will help the parents who read these books to see their child from a different perspective.'
- Dr A H Brafman, from his Series Editor's Foreword
