“The study of children with conditions such as blindness,
deafness and autism is immensely important and revealing. Professor
Lewis provides an up-to-date overview of such research that is
authoritative, wide-ranging, and impressively free of prejudice.
She sifts and clarifies the evidence in such a way as to reveal the
subtlety (and at times, the ambiguity) of research findings about
these and other childhood conditions.” Peter Hobson,
Tavistock Professor of Developmental Psychopathology, University
"this volume demonstrates the worth of a gradual accumulation of
scientific knowledge on the development of children with
disabilities. Vicky Lewis deserves great credit for what must have
been a Herculean effort in reading and integrating the ever growing
body of research studies." Nick Bozic, Worcestershire EPS, The
Psychology of Education Review, Vol.27, No.2
''(Development and Disability) is very comprehensive. It is factual and detailed and this could lead it to be dry but in fact it reads in an interesting and logical way, and is clear and easy to follow.'' Katie Alcock, Psychology: Learning and Teaching, 4, 3, March 2005.
