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.
