Abstract

In the two preceding volumes in this series, Hogg and Sebba (1986a,b) have described educational and therapeutic approaches to people with profound retardation and multiple impairments, and the relevant developmental and psychological background. It will be apparent to those concerned with these most disabled of individuals that management of their often complex conditions extends beyond these important considerations to a variety of medical and physical considerations. Our earlier volumes had little to say on this subject, and the present book, the third in the series, sets out to remedy this situation.
