Written for anyone working and caring for children with special developmental needs, this book was first published in 1970 and has long been considered a classic by those in the field. It offers a radically holistic and child-centered approach that views childhood disabilities not as a "pathological condition," but in terms of the child's total development and environment. This new edition has been extensively revised to reflect the challenges facing therapeutic education today, to provide insight and guidance for all those currently living and working with children with special needs.
