The Common Sense Guide to Your Child's Special Needs What does it mean when a child has difficulty with developmental milestones, and what next steps can parents take? Pediatrician Louis Pellegrino offers down-to-earth answers in this new version of When Your Child Has a Disability, now reorganized to address parents' areas of concern. What are the signs that a disability might be present, and what next steps can parents take to help their child?

Now streamlined and reorganized by key developmental milestones rather than by disability, this book responds perfectly to the needs of parents who don't have a diagnosis yet or want to explore challenges common across disabilities. With reassuring warmth, good humor, and candor, Dr. Pellegrino offers practical guidance on what it means and what to do next when a child struggles with

· speech and language development

· motor skills development

· daily living skills

· social skills

· behavioral control and attention

· learning and cognitive development

· vision, hearing, and sensory processing

· special medical issues

Throughout the book, Dr. Pellegrino combines research-based information and guidance with vivid metaphors, jargon-busting explanations of key terms, fascinating "pearls of wisdom," and engaging anecdotes from his personal and professional experience.

A go-to guide for families, a highly accessible resource for professionals, and an ideal supplemental text for tomorrow's practitioners, this book will be a mainstay reference for everyone who picks it up. Keep it at your fingertips for a great developmental primer and the guidance you need to take first steps toward resolving a child's challenges.

"Transcends labels with great clarity and guidance for parents. Like having your own developmental pediatrician patiently on call for your questions and concerns."—Robert A. Naseef, Ph.D., psychologist, author of Special Children, Challenged Parents, and parent of an adult child with autism

"Dr. Pellegrino has truly hit a home run with this book.... It is essential reading for all parents raising young children—disability or not!"—Susan J. Moreno, President, OASIS@MAAP, MAAP Services for Autism and Asperger Syndrome
