This valuable volume in the You and Your ChildSeries discusses what it is like to have a child with a learning disability. It looks at the physical, mental, and emotional development of children with varying degrees of learning disabilities. The volume takes into consideration the emotional as well as the practical consequences of having a child with a learning disability, and looks at the relationships these young adults have formed with their parents, siblings, grandparents, friends, and the rest of the social circle around them. The chapters are built around case material based on the lives of six young adults. The volume traces their development from childhood to the adults they are today, and the case studies are presented in the form of illuminating commentary from the parents and provide extra insight into the everyday lives of the children. In addition, each chapter looks at education and schooling in detail, and the importance of support outside the family nucleus is readily acknowledged. This inspiring book will be of great help to parents, as well as people working with, living with, and taking care of children with learning disabilities. It encourages parents and other caretakers to observe their children and give them the opportunities they need to develop at their own pace; to understand how the children relate to the world around them and how they see themselves in it.

'Each of the authors featured has published papers and books for the academic and clinical communities; the present volumes, however, are specifically aimed at parents. The intent is not to convince but to inform the reader. Rather than offering solutions, we are describing, explaining, and discussing the problems that parents meet while bringing up their children, from infancy through to adulthood.'We try to provide portraits of the various stages in the child's cognitive, intellectual, and emotional development and how these unfolding stages affect not only the child's experience of himself, but also how he perceives and relates to the world in which he lives. Our hope is that establishing this context will help the parents who read these books to see their child from a different perspective.'- Dr A H Brafman, from his Series Editor's Foreword
