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.
A UNIQUE SCHOOL & THERAPY CENTRE
IMAGINE IF DURBAN
Imagine if Durban became the epicentre for the country of unlocking the potential of people who have special needs. Imagine a city where people who are termed “disabled” are contributing members of families, who can love and be loved, and fulfil responsibilities. Imagine a city where people who are termed “different” are dynamic members of society in the business arena, in the music industry, in arts and culture, in medical and educational fields.
