Synopsis: Stanley Greenspan, internationally known for his work with infants, young children, and their families, and his colleague, nationally recognized child psychologist Serena Wieder, have for the first time integrated their award-winning research and clinical experience into a definitive guide to raising children with special needs. In this essential work they lay out a complete, step-by-step approach for parents, educators, and others who work with developmental problems. Covering all kinds of disabilities including autism, PPD, language and speech problems, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and ADD the authors offer a new understanding of the nature of these challenges and also specific ways of helping children extend their intellectual and emotional potential.The authors first show how to move beyond labels to observe the unique profile strengths and problems of the individual child. Next, they demonstrate the techniques necessary to help the child not only reach key milestones but also develop new emotional and intellectual capacities. Greenspan's well-known ”floortime” approach enables parents, as well as clinicians, to use seemingly playful interactions that help children actually move up the development ladder and often master creative and abstract thinking formerly thought beyond their reach. Including vivid case histories, the book also offers deep and compassionate understanding of the stresses and rewards involved in raising a child with special needs.whose amazing work with autistic and other special needs children is nationally known, and his colleague, child psychologist Serena Wieder, have integrated a lifetime of research and clinical practice into a single, comprehensive guide for parents. Covering all kinds of disabilities including cerebral palsy, autism, retardation, ADD, PDD, and language problems the book offers specific ways of helping all children reach their full intellectual and emotional potential.First the authors show how to move beyond the label and observe the strengths and problems of the particular child and the key milestones that must be reached. Next, they move step by step through the techniques necessary to help the child reach these milestones and show how to tailor these to each child. Finally, with a deep and compassionate understanding they outline the marital, educational, and social stresses and rewards in raising a special needs child.

From the Publisher: Nature or nurture. One of the most intense debates in understanding the development of the human mind is whether cognitive ability is based in genetics or developed through learning experiences. While biology clearly plays a part, recent neuroscience research shows that the interactions experienced during infancy and childhood can actually change the physical structure and wiring of the brain.

Does this mean many children with developmental and learning disorders--such as autism, PDD, language and speech problems, ADD, Down syndrome and others--can make greater progress than previously thought? The pioneering work of Stanley Greenspan and Serena Wieder strongly supports this prospect.
