"A timely publication that brings together a group of highly respected contributors from Europe, North America and Australia. Its strength lies in its coverage of important conceptual issues, including person-centred planning, supported by a critical analysis of contemporary strategies and assessment instruments. The focus on person-centred planning ensures its relevance to emerging practices in the support of people with an intellectual disability. It will find a place in the libraries of both practitioners and researchers." Professor Trevor R. Parmenter, Foundation Chair of Developmental Disability, University of Sydney

"This is a thought-provoking review of current assessment practice, reflecting the shift towards person-centred approaches and a concern to make assessment secure better lives for people with intellectual disabilities." Professor Jim Mansell, Tizard Centre, University of Kent at Canterbury
