Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

With appropriate planning, care, and support, persons who have developmental disabilities can live full and healthy lives. Developmental Disabilities from Childhood to Adulthood gives psychiatrists the tools and information they need to help their patients do just that. This practical guide addresses the special needs of developmentally disabled individuals throughout the life span, from childhood to midlife to old age.

The contributors to the volume, all with extensive expertise in working with persons with developmental disabilities, cover such topics as education; community integration; psychopathology and behavior; ethical, legal, and social issues; and systems management and advocacy. They discuss in detail the specific needs of special populations, including persons who have autism spectrum disorders, mental retardation, or brain injury, and describe practical approaches to assessing and treating affected individuals and working with other health care providers and systems of care.

Developmental Disabilities from Childhood to Adulthood is a must-have reference for psychiatrists working with developmentally disabled patients of all ages.
