Overcoming Barriers is a CD-ROM resource for all concerned with disability. It incorporates the full text and references of eighteen recently published Cambridge books in the area of psychological and neuro-disability. Cambridge University Press is well-known in the clinical and academic communities as the publisher of innovative and authoritative texts, references and journals in the field of disability. With journals such as Development and Psychopathology, Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry and Allied Disciplines, and books authored by clinical academics of the order of Edward Zigler, Dante Cicchetti, Richard Gregory, and Uta Frith, the research and professional communities look to Cambridge for a lead in this area of publishing. With Overcoming Barriers, we break new ground in providing for the information needs of disability specialists. Autism, language and learning disorders, Down's syndrome and deafness in childhood and adolescence are among the common and multi-faceted conditions surveyed in this important electronic resource. This CD-ROM is a cost effective way of building a library in disability research and practice. Comprehensively indexed and fully searchable, it will complement the books and journals already available in the departmental or individual library, offering rapid access to the best available information.
