Drawing on the latest research and extensive practical experience, it examines many aspects of development during the early years. Presented in an accessible format, it is a useful reference for families and professionals caring for young children with Down syndrome.

It provides information about the development of social, motor, language, cognitive, play, attention, behaviour and self-help skills. It also details typical milestones for children with Down syndrome in these areas. The book highlights the influence of the family and the social interactive nature of development. Individual differences are discussed, as are key health and family issues. Principles for early intervention, therapy and education services are identified, based on the specific needs of children with Down syndrome and research on effectiveness. "Down Syndrome Issues and Information" is a major series of practical and informative books covering the full range of developmental, health and social issues relating to individuals with Down syndrome. The books have been written by many of the world's leading experts and are based on years of research and hands-on experience. - from Amzon
