“Children who have encountered trauma early in life can experience real differences in their social and cognitive development. This comprehensive guide introduces what such developmental difference means, how it affects a child and offers strategies to help support or alleviate problems that commonly arise. It will provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to meet your own child’s individual needs, and to help them to flourish.
Dr McLean explains how children with developmental differences understand the world around them and offers easy-to-use techniques to help children with sensory and emotional regulation difficulties or delays in language, communication or memory development.
