Summary: "Aims to help medical practitioners care for people with developmental disability. In particular, general practitioners are central to care of these people. The guidelines cover a broad range - from birth to old age, from assessment to long-term management and from general health concerns to those specific to syndromes. [This book] is also relevant to a broader readership. Input from a range of medical and nonmedical professions is usually required when responding to the health needs of people with developmental disability. Most importantly, the person with disability, their families and other support people need to be involved. The guidelines have been written so they are accessible to people who are not professional health care workers. As well as medical information, this book discusses the social, developmental and environmental concerns common to all people with developmental disability." - INTRODUCTIONReview: This book would be the most highly recommended health resource for every area office. It covers almost all key support issues that our services face. It describes conditions and concerns for the range of issues people we support face simply, accurately and helpfully.
