Book by Sarah
When young children are diagnosed with conditions such as Down's syndrome,
autism or other forms of developmental delay, there is much that parents
can do to help. "Small Steps Forward" provides parents and care givers
with the information they require and a host of ideas to encourage their
child's development. The games and activities suggested in the book use
toys and materials which most children will already have, and involve no
special preparation. They are also fun to play.
The book is divided into eleven chapters with a foreword that defines how
the book is structured along with instructions on how to use the book.
The chapters: How to Survive; What Everyone Needs to Know; Cognitive
Development; Language Development; Physical Development; Sensory
Development; Social Development; Emotional Development; Additional
Practical Advice and The Support Your Child Should Expect. Also included
is a chapter on resources which includes support organizations and
suppliers of toys and equipment for children with special needs.
