Library Journal Review

Moore, an information specialist for the Association for Retarded Citizens and the parent of a child with multiple handicaps, describes this book as providing materials that in her estimation are ``the most relevant and helpful works, those that subscribe to up-to-date theories and are readable and interesting.'' More than 600 informative, well-written annotations are organized in the following categories: all disabilities; specific disabilities, from autism to visual disabilities; specific topics such as advocacy, behavior modification, and planning for the future; books about and for children with special needs; and journals and magazines. Appendixes and indexes list publishers' addresses, support organizations, authors, titles, and subjects. An excellent resource not only for parents but also for librarians, special educators, and health care professionals.--Jodith Janes, Cleveland Clinic Foundation (c) Copyright 2010.
