Care of the Handicapped Child
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book is a tribute to Ronald Mac Keith, who during his lifetime was the leading exponent of the broader aspects of care of handicapped children. In following his philosophy, it covers the aetiologies, the family, the environment, the therapies, the research and the teaching. The book will help all those in any way involved in looking after handicapped children to care for them with a new understanding.
