Issues in Neonatal Care.
Waldstein, Arnold, Ed.; And Others
This collection of articles evolved from papers presented and issues discussed at a workshop entitled "The Health Care/Education Relationship: Services for Infants with Special Needs and Their Families," held in March, 1981, for members of the Handicapped Children's Early Education Program (HCEEP) network. During that workshop, staff from many HCEEP projects involved with neonates and their families came together to share information regarding the problems and developments of professionals in health care environments. Grouped into the larger categories of assessment, intervention, and family support, chapters provide information on significant and innovative practices currently being used and tested in the field of neonatal care. Part 1 includes papers by leading researchers in the field, including Brazelton, Als, and Duffy. Part 2 focuses on the evolving role of the infant developmental specialist. Part 3 includes papers which discuss innovative approaches to fostering positive interactions between professionals and the families of hospitalized infants. (RH)
