Though this book is technically a textbook, it may also be useful to parents and/or other family members of someone with an intellectual or developmental disability.

There are chapters on specific disabilities, i.e., cerebral palsy, down syndrome, and autism that allow for insights into the specifics of the disability that is having an effect on a particular family or human services situation.

Information is included on intervention, education, family roles, health issues, and specific disabilities such as Down syndrome and autism.

The book is lifespan-focused, with topics ranging from genetics and development to aging issues. It presents facts as well as practical, real-world advice on working with people with disabilities and meeting their individual needs.

Information is also multidisciplinary, blending the research and personal experiences of more than 70 world-renowned authors from diverse fields.

As a textbook, it also includes learning objectives, instructive case stories, stimulating questions for reflection, and key Internet resources. It contains a compendium of information, insights, and answers, for current and future educators, social workers, researchers, and clinicians to know what to do and how to do it once they start their work with people with disabilities.
