This is a phenomenal handbook which provides clear, concise symptomology, behavioural descriptors and definitions to guide the practitioner’s understanding and planning processes. Professionals will appreciate the 17 case studies that illustrate DC: 0-3’s application of evaluation and treatment planning with very young children and their families.
