Reviews

This book is essential reading for anyone working with children and their families. It provides excellent overall coverage of a very important area of work with children and its appraisal of the value of integrated services is helpful, constructive and timely. It is unusual to see such a range of topics covering heath, social care and education issues in one volume; the coverage is first class.
