Press reviews for: Parenting Traumatized Children with Developmental Differences

Professor Daryl Higgins, PhD, MAPS ICPS Director Australian Catholic University

Carers often cry out for information about how to understand the challenging behaviours of children who have come into their care. Dr McLean provides not just an understanding of key developmental milestones and the role of adversity, but practical guidance on how to meet the needs of children with 'developmental difference'.

Professor Elizabeth Fernandez, The University of New South Wales, Australia

Addressing a broad range of parenting and practice issues in a clear accessible style this guide is an informative and valuable resource for adoptive and foster carers , practitioners and educators.

Amanda Porter, Chief Executive Officer Connecting Foster & Kinship Carers – SA Inc

I commend this book as an essential read for all current and future caregivers who want to understand their child's behaviour and to parent more effectively.

The author has usefully brought together information on multiple aspects of a child's development, which, when functioning as it should, contributes to the child attaining a healthy and fulfilled life. New insights are provided for the reader - not necessarily on the specific developmental differences, which are knowledge-base dependant, but rather on how this all connects and interrelates; the body-mind connection. This book is written with foster carers and adoptive parents in mind. The information it contains is also beneficial for professionals within fostering and adoption services, enhancing their knowledge of child development from multiple aspects and is, therefore, a valuable resource for all.
