Introduction

Multidisciplinary Interventions for People with Diverse Needs is a book written from an interdisciplinary perspective with the objective of helping readers to understand the problems faced by people with special needs.

Key Features:

The book equips the reader with information about different approaches to medical and social issues that arise when dealing with persons who are experiencing some degree of disability.
