About this title

Synopsis:

Dealing in turn with blindness, deafness, motor handicaps (as caused by spina bifida, cerebral palsy or thalidomide), Down's syndrome and autism, this book examines the existing psychological research into the developing abilities of handicapped children in movement, perception, cognition, language and social interaction. The book asks what implications the study of these children has for our understanding of development, and argues that the evidence undermines the notion that there is only one route by which all children develop. In addition, the practical implications to be drawn from this research are outlined.

From the Back Cover:

How do sensory, mental and physical handicaps affect the development of children? What does the study of these children tell us about the processes of development?

Dealing in turn with blindness, deafness, motor handicaps (as caused by spina bifida, cerebral palsy or thalidomide), Down's syndrome and autism, Vicky Lewis examines the existing psychological research into the developing abilities of handicapped children in movement and argues that the evidence undermines the notion that there is only one route by which all children develop. In addition, the practical implications to be drawn from this research are outlined.

In drawing these findings together, Development and Handicap provides a comprehensive account of the effects of different handicaps on children's development which will be of interest to those concerned with the theory of development as well as great practical value to all those working with handicapped children.
