    The purpose of this volume is to share the thoughts of early childhood researchers and practitioners about different ways family systems theories and family-centred practices have informed how early childhood intervention has been conceptualised and practised. Each chapter in the book includes descriptions of various and unique perspectives for working with young children with special needs and their families. The authors consider approaches to early childhood intervention that can enhance the positive outcomes for children, parents and the family as a whole. The reader will experience a rich array of information that can be used to improve the ways in which early childhood practitioners go about their work with young children and their families.
