The Other Child: The Brain-Injured Child.

The Other Child: The Brain-Injured Child. The impact that a child with organic brain disease has upon the family constellation may be more damaging to the family than to the child itself. An understanding by the parents of the true nature of the injury and its prognosis is necessary for proper adjustment of the family to their problem. This book, by Lewis, Strauss and Lehtinen, is an attempt to interpret to the parents the difference between their normal children and this "other child." The book describes in nontechnical language and by use of many examples the nature of the thinking and learning processes in such a child and the necessity for the proper and realistic evaluation. The special problems of education, in which the authors are especially qualified, are well handled. The book assumes that the reader has a certain amount of orientation in the field of psychology and is written for the intelligent parent.
