This practical, professional guide covers a broad range of physical, intellectual, sensory, developmental, behavioural and learning conditions, with contributions from experts in each field. Clear explanations of how each condition manifests are followed by advice on what settings can do to ensure these conditions are not a barrier to childrenís learning and social engagement.
