Author: Madeleine Portwood
Building on the worldwide success of her earlier book, Developmental Dyspraxia, Madeleine Portwood has again broken new ground. This textbook will appeal to professionals in the field and to undergraduate and postgraduate students preparing for careers in teaching, physiotherapy, occupational and speech therapy, psychology, nursing and general practice.
An emphasis is placed on the theoretical aspects of Developmental Dyspraxia, the latest research data and the neurological basis of the condition – yet the focus is to enable professionals to diagnose the disorder and determine the most appropriate and effective methods of intervention. The author’s extensive research into Dyspraxia is internationally accepted as being at the forefront of work in the field and has formed the basis of several television documentaries on the subject.
