Going far beyond the traditional model of treating and reducing symptoms, renowned paediatrician Heidi Feldman gives professionals a big-picture blueprint for improving the lives of children with disabilities and helping them participate fully in family and community life.

Roizen, MD"Director, Division of Developmental/Behavioral Pediatrics and Psychology, Professor of Pediatrics, UH/Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital" (06/19/2013)

Rather than providing only biological treatments, she urges us to integrate functional and environmental considerations with biological approaches. Heidi's prescription is one that should be widely followed." --Paul P. Wang, MD
