Built upon the good practice for which the Dyscovery Centre has become so well known, this book takes a broader view of the difficulties that those with additional needs face. It considers whether this is a health, educational or social difficulty and what the wider implications are for the individual and how they manage at home and in the community.
The authors look at what happens, what can be done to help and what changes occur as the child becomes an adolescent and eventually an adult.
Teachers, SENCOs, teaching assistants, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists and parents of children with dyspraxia or developmental co-ordination disorders should find this book stimulates their thinking and helps them in their work.
Introduction; developmental coordination disorder (DCD) - nature or nurture?; development of the child; assessing the child with DCD; the primary school child; the adolescent - a time of transition; the adult; language and communication; behaviour and psychosocial issues in DCD; intervention - research and treatments.
