This is a focused and compact resource on the current issues and practices affecting children with special health care needs (CSHCN) from birth to age five. The editors combine anthropological and biomedical perspectives and present real-world, practical advice from seasoned clinicians, family members with experience as caregivers, and longtime leaders in the development of policies affecting children with special health care needs. They intend the book to be used as a basis for dialogue between families and professionals. It offers an essential discussion of ways to improve care for the children, examining what "appropriate care" consists of as seen from a range of disciplinary and stakeholder perspectives. Although not a textbook, it presents basic information about particular conditions to help summarize the state of thinking on the subject today, describe the agenda for the future, and prepare professionals and parents alike to meet its challenges.
