When young children are diagnosed with conditions such as Down's Syndrome, autism or other forms of developmental delay, there is much that parents can do to help. Small Steps Forward provides parents and carers with the information they require and a host of ideas to encourage their child's development. The games and activities suggested in the book use toys and materials which most children will already have, and involve no special preparation. They are also fun to play.
