Interdisciplinary Clinical Assessment of Young Children with Developmental Disabilities
By:Michael J. Guralnick
This text examines interdisciplinary team assessments as a process to support planning and recommendation for interventions involving practitioners and family members on a level playing field. Case studies demonstrate how various disciplines synthesize biological, environmental and cultural factors to design interventions for children and their families. An international perspective is also provided.
This text is helpful in providing critical insight into how different disciplines approach the same issues. It allows professionals to gain an appreciation of theoretical and practical orientation dictated by such fields as audiology, nutrition, psychology, social work, nursing, physical and occupational therapy, speech-language pathology and developmental pediatrics. Students and practitioners will find the case studies and appendices most useful.
