BOOK EXCERPT:

In this three-volume set, experts from around the world spotlight the latest research on physical and psychological disabilities, as well as the social, legal, and political issues that come to bear on those people affected. These authors teach us what the disabilities are, how common they have become, what challenges people with disabilities face, what treatments are available, and whether new promising efforts for rehabilitation are on the horizon. We also learn, in these volumes, about social actions that have advanced human rights for people with disabilities in countries around the world. Yet, we learn that in these same countries, discriminatory actions against people with disabilities continue to occur. The impact of different cultural beliefs about disability are explored and these beliefs are juxtaposed against legislative responses. In all three volumes, people with disabilities share their personal narratives about events they have faced in society. They provide rich examples of how culture, social interactions, and legislation can impact on people.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This definitive textbook provides accessible information on best practice for assessing the needs and strengths of vulnerable children and their families. It explores the challenges that practitioners face routinely - with suggestions as to how to address them - as well as the established areas for assessment, of children's developmental needs, parenting ability and motivation, and socio-economic factors. This new edition has been extended substantially to include recent practice, policy and theoretical developments, such as understanding the lived experience of children, young people, and family members. It also considers children's neurological development, assessing parental capacity to change, early help assessments, emerging areas of practice such as child sexual exploitation, and working with asylum-seeking and trafficked children. Crucially, this updated edition takes a broader approach in offering relevant information to a range of professionals working with vulnerable children. The importance of inter-professional working is emphasised throughout.

"Guide To A Child's World shows the parent and the teacher how to teach a child to achieve such things as intelligent self-expression, good manners, and "an enjoyment of learning," for these are the paths to future emotional and mental well-being. Isabelle P. Buckley's aim is to instill "self-expression through self-discipline" in her many pupils, and the measure of her success is evident in the wide acceptance of her working ideas and in the popularity of her schools. Among her more orthodox qualifications as a fine teacher, Mrs. Buckley has one rather seemingly simple (but important) quality that many teachers don't pay much attention to--she likes children and children like her. Guide To A Child's World contains the hard core of Mrs. Buckley's common-sense approaches to the education of children and is an invaluable handbook to both parent and teacher"--Jacket.
