One Step at a Time.
Intended for parents of handicapped infants and young children, the booklet provides guidelines for child rearing and suggests additional resources. The booklet stresses that the handicapped child needs what every child needs, that home is where a baby starts learning, the importance of getting a thorough evaluation if the parent suspects something is wrong, and the value of keeping activities with the child fun. Twenty-three books are recommended. Getting diagnostic and programmatic help from professionals is discussed as are sources of additional information about available programs. A final section stresses the value of parent groups. Forty-eight organizations that can help parents are listed according to specific disability. (DB)
