'A large number of case studies bring the book alive. This book is very much an introductory text and is friendly and non-threatening for parents to use as a resource to provide positive information and help for their children.'

'this is an interesting read and provides a good exposition of the development of learners across pre-school and the primary age. This is integrated with specific learning difficulties, which may not otherwise be understood.'
- Patoss Bulletin
'A most welcome book for professionals and parents... It offers practical advice on how to recognize sighs of developmental delay and also gives practical advice on how to access more information and support... I would certainly recommend this book as an invaluable source of information, to both colleagues and parents.'
- Afasic News
'Easy to read and understand, this would be a useful tool for parents and teachers of children with a range of developmental difficulties. For a speech and language therapist working within a multidisciplinary team, it gives a helpful framework for some of the work undertaken by colleagues from other disciplines.'
- Speech & Language therapy in Practice
'For frustrated parents who suspect that their children may have a developmental delay, there's help - and hope - with this sound guidebook... The author incorporates numerous composites, based on actual students, which allow parents to recognize similar traits in their own children. She also includes extensive charts, checklists, tips, and sample student reports. Addressing the causes in addition to the symptoms of developmental delays, Mountstephen aids parents in tackling their children's concerns with appropriate strategies. She doesn't just want to label children, but help them find success in the world around them.'
'With helpful tips, simple descriptions and well-structured chapters this book provides all parents and professionals working with children with a better understanding of children's needs and what can actually be done to help.'
