The familiar image of the disabled tends to emphasize their limitations and reduced quality of life. However, many people with cognitive, motor, and other difficulties also have the capacity to enhance their social interactions, leisure pursuits and daily activities with the aid of assistive technology. Assistive devices from the simple to the sophisticated, have become essential to intervention programs for this population. And not surprisingly the numbers of devices available are growing steadily. Assistive Technologies for People with Diverse Abilities offers expert analysis of pertinent issues coupled with practical discussion of solutions for effective support. Its comprehensive literature review describes current and emerging devices and presents evidence-based guidelines for matching promising technologies to individuals. Program outcomes are assessed, as are their potential impact on the future of the field. In addition, chapters provide detailed descriptions of the personal and social needs of the widest range of individuals with congenital and acquired conditions, including: Acquired brain damage. Communication impairment. Attention and learning difficulties (with special focus on college students). Visual impairment and blindness. Autism spectrum disorders. Behavioral and occupational disorders. Alzheimer's disease. Severe, profound and multiple impairments. The scope and depth of coverage makes Assistive Technologies for People with Diverse Abilities an invaluable resource for researchers, professionals and graduate students in developmental psychology, rehabilitation medicine, educational technology, occupational therapy, speech pathology and clinical psychology.

This handbook presents a diverse range of effective treatment approaches for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Its triple focus on key concepts, treatment and training modalities, and evidence-based interventions for challenging behaviors of individuals with IDD provides a solid foundation for effective treatment strategies, theory-to-implementation issues, and the philosophical and moral aspects of care. Expert contributions advocate for changes in treating individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by emphasizing caregiver support as well as respecting and encouraging client autonomy, self-determination, and choice. With its quality-of-life approach, the handbook details practices that are person-centered and supportive as well as therapeutically sound.

Skills training for parents of children with IDD as well as staff training in positive behavior support. Evidence-based interventions for a wide range of challenging behaviors and issues.

This text uses a straightforward approach and a highly personalized tone to present research and teaching practices, emphasizing the effects of disabilities on the lives of individuals, their families, and their teachers. Themes of commonality and collaboration encourage respect, minimize teacher anxiety, and de-emphasize the typical clinical approach to this content. "Portfolio Activities" help students prepare for their careers and provide resources such as online templates. Multicultural coverage has been fully integrated as a result of the advisory work of nationally known specialist Festus Obiakor (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee). Enhancements to the companion Web site provide greater integration of print and online content, as well as links to further research on special education. This updated version includes an 8-page insert highlighting the 2004 IDEA Reauthorization Legislation—the history of this important legislation, why the reauthorization was needed, and what the changes included—as well as a table correlating the new HM Video Cases to specific chapters in the book. Award-winning HM Video Cases have been added to the Online Teaching and Study Centers. These 4- to 6-minute cases present actual classroom scenarios that depict the complex challenges and opportunities teachers face every day. They are accompanied by classroom "artifacts," viewing questions, key terms, and bonus videos.

Trotz der Bedeutung der Gruppe der Gleichaltrigen für die Entwicklung von Kindern ist die therapeutische Gruppenarbeit mit Kindern bisher viel zu wenig erforscht und verbreitet. Alfons Aichinger und Walter Holl haben in über 30jähriger Arbeit die Grundideen und Interventionsmöglichkeiten des Psychodramas speziell für die therapeutische Gruppenarbeit mit Kindern weiterentwickelt. Mit vielen Beispielen beschreiben sie die sinnvolle Zusammensetzung der Gruppe, das symbolische Spiel der Kinder, Realitätsbezug und die Leitungstechnik einer solchen Gruppe. Das Buch ist eine Einladung an KollegInnen aller therapeutischer Schulen, eigene Denk- und Handlungsansätze für die therapeutische Arbeit mit Kindern zu entwickeln.

Der große amerikanische Kinoerfolg „Rain Man“ erzählt die Geschichte des Autisten Raymond mit anrührender Unmittelbarkeit und unpathetischer Leichtigkeit. Ebenso eindringlich und geradeaus ist die Geschichte der Autistin Temple Grandin, die übrigens mithalf, „Rain Man“ - Hauptdarsteller Dustin Hoffman auf seine anspruchsvolle Rolle vorzubereiten. Aus ihrer außergewöhnlichen Perspektive schildert Temple Grandin ihren zähen Kampf gegen die bizarren Symptome des Autismus: etwa das Unvermögen, ihre Bewegungen zu kontrollieren, die Besessenheit mit einer Beschäftigung, ihre Geräuschempfindlichkeit, die Überreiztheit ihres Nervensystems überhaupt, oder ihre anfängliche totale Unfähigkeit, mittels Sprache oder auch nur Körperkontakt eine Verbindung zur Außenwelt herzustellen - obwohl sie gerade dies sehnlichst wünschte. Dass es ihr schließlich dennoch glückte, sich aus ihrem gläsernen Gefängnis zu befreien, verdankt sie ihrem eigenen Erfindungsreichtum: Sie konstruierte einen Apparat, mit dessen Hilfe sie körperliche Berührung zulassen, aber auch kontrollieren konnte. Diese „Zaubermaschine“ wie auch die liebevolle Zuwendung einiger weniger Menschen öffneten ihr den Weg durch die gläserne Tür in die reale Welt.
