Early Childhood Intervention without Tears: Improved support for infants with disabilities and their families
Written By Peter Limbrick.
Early childhood intervention services for babies and infants with disabilities have evolved with two in-built assumptions:
· Disabled infants can be treated very differently from typically developing infants
· Families must accept exhaustion and stress, often to the point of family breakdown
Peter Limbrick argues that both of these assumptions are wrong.
This book describes an approach that supports families in finding a workable balance between interventions for the infant and quality of life for the whole family.
Early intervention teams are invited to look afresh at how their work impacts on parent-infant attachment and on the family’s journey to a new version of liveable family life.
