This book documents and builds on the experiences of a team of special educators in south India who have been experimenting with a new and better strategy for providing services to children with special needs. This approach is based on training rehabilitation workers in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy, thereby preparing them to serve as transdisciplinary workers. This equips them to offer a comprehensive treatment programme for a range of disabilities, as also for the families of children with special needs. Key Features: Describes how the model of the transdisciplinary approach (TD) was conceptualized and implemented - including the development of an innovative ‘TD course’ Illustrates, with case studies, how TD changes the intervention that families receive, and how the outcome is affected by the change in approach Argues that the TD approach, with its continuous give-and-take among stakeholders, is an improvement over the existing model that focuses primarily on medical services Puts into perspective the role of the professional rehabilitation worker in the context ofunderstanding disability today
