Early Intervention in Transition: Current Perspectives on Programs for Handicapped Children


The growing prominence of ecological and social systems perspectives in the child development and family studies fields is having a significant impact on the conceptualization and delivery of early intervention services. The exclusive focus on the handicapped or developmentally delayed child is gradually giving way to a much broader focus on the family as a system. This book brings together the conceptual and empirical work of a number of scholars whose current research is at the leading edge of these shifts. Marfo's volume has an international appeal--but perhaps more significantly it affords American researchers a unique opportunity to learn more about the intervention field.
