Filling a critical gap in professional education, this groundbreaking textbook and training tool presents a comprehensive, interdisciplinary framework for delivering effective health care to children with disabilities and chronic illnesses. Going far beyond the traditional model of treating and reducing symptoms, renowned pediatrician 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.
