It describes the disorders and problems of both children and adults, considers the day-to-day management of conditions and is written in non-technical language for a wider audience whilst giving enough detail for the medical, nursing and midwifery professions. The text is well indexed and has an extensive glossary. Whilst new methods of diagnosis, investigation and treatment will, of course. occur over the next few years, the basics described in this book will still apply. Social workers, nursery nurses and educationalists will find this reference source invaluable as a basis for assessing needs and potential in their students and clients."@en ;
