'[Tom Billington's] expertise and his commitment to working with excluded and marginalised children shines through this thoroughly engaging book...The vignettes of children from his own professional caseload are insightful, moving and thought-provoking, and I believe anyone working with children would gain much from these alone, never mind the rest of the book' - Therapy Today 'The chapter on "Working with autistic children" shows, thoughtfully and precisely, how continuing reflection on the experience of autistic children, and our response as professionals, to them, provides as opportunity not only to think about the child in question, but also about ourselves as experimental beings...Billington's book, then serves as an excellent guide for students pursuing professional training, as well as operating as a resource for more experienced child health specialists' - YoungMinds Magazine Written for professionals working with children and young people who require support, assessment or intervention at home or in school, this interdisciplinary book explores everything from the legislative background and foundations of ideas in the social sciences, to dealing with children's distress, fear or special needs in professional practice. The book is an excellent resource for those who either work with children in CAMHS settings, social work, youth work, counselling, psychology, general education and special educational needs or who are undertaking professional training in any of the above fields.
