  • The newest thinking on children with special needs
  • Dr. Benjamin Spock is America’s most trusted name in child care and parenting, and his essential guidebook has topped
    bestseller lists for over sixty-five years. This fully revised and updated edition of the classic manual provides first
    time and experienced parents the best information about caring for new babies, toddlers, and adolescents in the
    twenty-first century.

    All of Dr. Spock’s invaluable, time-tested advice is here, along with the most current medical practices and advances in
    health care. While still covering key parenting issues like accidents, illnesses and injuries, this edition of the
    classic also contains the latest on:

    * Immunizations
    * Nutrition and childhood obesity
    * Cultural diversity
    * Alternative and non-traditional family structures
    * Children’s learning and brain development
    * Raising children with special needs
    * Environmental health
    * Increasingly common disorders such as ADHD, childhood depression, and autism—including medications and behavioral
    interventions
    * Children and the media, including screen time, video games, and the internet

    Updated by leading pediatrician Robert Needlman, the book includes a revised glossary of common medications and a
    resource guide that compiles the most reliable online resources. This indispensable guide is still the next best thing
    to Dr. Spock’s #1 rule of parenting: “Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.”
