"Development and Disability" is the fully revised edition of the successful text, "Development and Handicap", first published in 1987. As in the first edition, Vicky Lewis reviews research on the development of blind children, deaf children, and children with spina bifida, cerebral palsy, Down's syndrome and autism. In addition, she includes research on children with developmental co-ordination disorder. For each disability, Vicky Lewis provides background information on the nature of the disability, assessment, incidence, and causal factors. She then summarizes what is known about the effect of each disability on the development of motor skills, perception, cognition, communication, emotion and social skills. Finally, the practical and theoretical implications of the experimental findings are examined. Since the publication of the first edition, a vast amount of new research has been published on how the psychological development of children is affected by disability. Now including over 1100 references, this much-enlarged edition provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of this research activity.
