This revised and updated edition, like its highly acclaimed predecessor, offers a multisystems perspective on childhood disability and its effects on family life. A comprehensive and clinically useful resource, the book integrates theory and research with personal accounts from family members to examine the many variables that shape a family's responses to childhood disability and its ability to overcome the physical, cultural, and social barriers to a satisfactory lifestyle. The book shows professionals how to apply a social and family systems-based approach to assessment and intervention with diverse families. It also describes new programs in this area, and discusses both established and emerging intervention strategies.
