Disabled Children & Developing Countries
This book describes the situation of children with a range of disabilities living in developing countries. It evaluates currently available models of therapy, treatment and education, and how some of these have been applied where resources are scarce. Community-based solutions reached in developing countries, and the social and political context governing further progress, have implications in turn for professionals in developing countries. The book provides a critical basis of knowledge from which services for disabled children and their families may be planned appropriately. The international group of authors do not focus on any particular disability, nor on any one part of the world, but provide a broad coverage of issues concerning children and disability in developing countries.
