In specific developmental disorders, a child has one or more skills, for instance language, reading, motor coordination or spelling, that are delayed or develop at a slower pace than other skills.

Part Two presents the various instruments used to assess attachment and caregiving. This informative and easy to read book is an essential resource for parents, teachers, those new to the field, and people on the autism spectrum themselves.
