Many prematurely born children develop normally, but there are many who have to battle with hidden consequences of their too early birth - for example fear and insecurity; hyperactivity and hyper sensitivity; frequent infections; difficulties with concentration and with learning; delayed development of motor-skills; problems with eating and sleeping; and stress and restlessness. The book discusses how these physical and mental consequences - both apparent and hidden - can be understood and alleviated. The book is written from a trans-disciplinary aspect, and the aim is to give parents and professional carers involved with the children opportunities for prevention, repairing and re-building. Both accepted and alternative methods of treatment are included. The book provides much practical advice, and a series of case histories, including the author's own. This book is aimed at both parents of the too early born and those who, as a result of their professional life, come into contact with this group of children.
