Children are born ready to explore and make sense of their world. As their environment unfolds, from mother's arms and gaze to the first grasp, first step, and gradually into the larger and busier world of preschool, young children discover their capacities - all the things they can make happen. But what happens when development goes awry, in the case of autistic spectrum disorders and other neuro-developmental disorders? How can we understand and help children who present with challenges in the preschool environment? How can we talk sensitivetly and supportively with parents about our concerns?
Using video illustrations and vignettes, psychologist Stephanie Pass and physical herapist Janet Green Babb, who have closely collaborated over the last 14 years, will consider these situations and make suggestions.
