Reviews

From the reviews: "This handbook offers a brilliant exploration of the many issues revolving around two populations, those with intellectual disabilities and those with developmental disabilities (who may also have cognitive deficits). ! Each contributor is an expert in his or her own discipline, and each essay is grounded in thorough scholarly research (documented in an extensive bibliography). ! Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty, and professionals." (D. J. Winchester, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (9), May, 2007) "Handbook of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities has a substantial goal set for it: to broaden and elaborate on the required knowledge that individuals working with persons with developmental and intellectual disorders require at this time. ! As such, this book provides a useful model to follow for clinicians, researchers, and authors in this domain in the coming years. ! it proves to be an impressive and informative addition to the clinician's, student's, and researcher's library." (Scott J. Hunter, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (22), 2008)
