Summary:People from different cultural backgrounds prefer adhering to their own religious beliefs which could restrict treatment options leading to the detriment of health, especially if it involves the health of a disabled child. This comprehensive but concise work highlights the problems faced in managing the care of disabled children from different cultural backgrounds. It examines the problems inherent in the medical, social and educational management of children with developmental disability in populations whose value systems differ from other cultures. In particular it considers how care may be varied according to cultural background, without compromising its quality. The book is of immense value to all healthcare and social care professionals, policy makers and shapers, patient organisations and those with an interest in medical ethics.
