This classic, coauthored by New York Times columnist and pediatrician Dr. Perri Klass and Boston Medical Center's Chief of Ambulatory Pediatrics Dr. Eileen Costello, has been fully revised and updated to reflect the recent significant changes in the recognition and care of children whose development doesn’t go as expected. It includes new information about therapeutic interventions, managing co-morbidities, and getting support for children with developmental differences at school. Additional information included covers community resources and initiatives at hospitals and clinics that make life easier for children with developmental differences and their families.

The authors also offer a stronger focus on self-care for parents in this new edition, with the pediatrician’s perspective of supporting families as they go through the diagnostic process over time. The latest studies show that 1 in 6 children have a developmental disability of some kind—this guide is for the adults who love them and want to help them make their way in the world.
