Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book had the ambitious goal of education the public and professionals about this syndrome and improving the lives of those affected by it. It is no mean feat that [largely] it succeeds. The first part provides an overview of the condition; the second focuses on classroom interventions. Recognized experts in the field write the background chapters...The second section on educational interventions is very practice and provides a wealth of advice that would benefit parents, educational staff and SLTs. The author is often at pains to point out the lack of evidence for advocated interventions in this condition but extrapolates from other related fields to make reasonable suggestions...[T]his remains a valuable resource." --Anny Mayne, Specialist SLT, North Thames Regional Cleft Lip and Palate Service, Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists Bulletin, (July 2013)

"The book is well organized and while one can access just the chapters that are related to their child's age, information in other chapters can be quite useful regardless of the child's grade in school... This is an excellent book to help professionals, educators and parent better understand VCFS and the educational needs of these students." [Refers to First Edition] --Christie Mellies, MS, CCC-SLP, Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

"As a parent and an occupational therapist, I recommend this resource about a rare condition that may require occupational therapy input for physical, cognitive, and possibly psychiatric reasons. The book has two parts: The first is scientific studies, and the second is educational interventions and evaluation of effective practices… Functional insights are specified from birth to adulthood...The editor is both a mother and a teacher with 38 years of experience. As an American, she provides extensive American resources as well as valuable contact information for centers of excellence in six other countries. I recommend this book for educators and for occupational therapists who work in mental health, pediatrics, and schools. As a parent of a child with this condition, I found it helpful and other parents may as well." --Jude A. Driscoll OT Reg.(PEI), Registered Occupational Therapist, TRE Facilitator Level I and II, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, (2013)

Before reading the book, I knew the gist of what VCFS was. I conducted searches on the internet, talked with others who had children with the same condition, and even watched videos on various streaming sites. But this book REALLY shows you how much you are missing out on. It helps you understand what goes on in the mind and thought process of someone with VCFS. Every time I would come across something that correlated with my daughter it made me stop and think, "Ohhh, now it makes perfect sense." I am glad that I found this book and highly recommend that every parent, teacher, speech therapist, etc. who cares for or deals with VCFS kids should certainly think about owning this. It is worth every penny!

Since my son has the 22q11.2 Deletion syndrome, I was impressed to find such a helpful compilation of practical information for me to use to not only educate myself, but to pass on to my son's teachers and school staff who will be working with him. Thanks to Ms. Landsman who worked on setting the bar for parents and educators who will be leading the way in educating the public on this much over-looked and misunderstood syndrome. She communicated such valuable information that will be foundational for future study and research.
