Summary
[This book] provides a comprehensive review of the empirical evidence on interventions for families of individuals--ranging from post-presechool age to adulthood--with developmental disabilities. The authors present their work in the context of comtemporary social policy, and incorporate both narrative and meta-analytic syntheses of a large body of research to evaluate which interventions meet contemporary standards as evidence-based practices. The criiteria and procedure followed for identifying, reviewing, evaluating, and categorizing the studies are articulated in line with other major professional standards. Individual chapters focus on several different schools of practice, including: group psycho-educational interventions, behavioral parent training, multiple component interventions, supportive interventions for families of children with autism, home-and school-based practices, self-help groups, and advocacy programs. Aimed at maximizing the development of children with disabilities while increasing the quality of life of their familes, Supporting Families of Children with Developmental Disabilities is an invaluable tool for moving the disability field forward for future research, practice and social policy. --Publisher description, from book jacket
