? the theory and practice of working with people with intellectual disabilities and their families
? the core tasks of assessment, planning, monitoring and review
? the values of participation and inclusion in action

Illustrated with numerous case studies, discussion points and clear explanations, this addition to the Practical Social Work Series is an indispensable resource.

Review:

'It is essential reading not only for students studying in this area, but also for the wider groups of people concerned with the well-being of those living with intellectual disabilities. It is a must for inclusion in people's libraries!'- Dr Marie Knox, Senior Lecturer, Social Work and Human Services, Faculty of Health, Queensland University of Technology, Australia 'The book handles the historical and policy context particularly well within an approach based on social exclusion and advancing rights whilst criticising the rhetorical and loose reference to rights within government policy formulation and articulation.' Oxford Journals
