Reviews

This positive and comprehensive book provides an array of information about the need for a holistic, 'whole of life' approach when dealing with the case management of individuals with an intellectual disability...this book pieces topic by topic together to positively make up the jigsaw that that is case management... This well written and informative book looks critically and effectively at all the issues involved in case management. It raises a series of important issues that continue to need to be addressed if the quality of life for people with an intellectual disability is to continue to be significantly enhanced. -- The British Journal of Developmental Disabilities
