A book for parents of children with mental retardation**, whether or not they have a diagnosed syndrome or condition. It provides a complete introduction to a child's medical, therapeutic, and educational needs and covers topics such as family adjustment, daily care, child development, early intervention, special education, and legal rights. A reading list, a glossary of important terms, and a national listing of disability organizations make this a complete handbook
