Book CoverA Toss of the Dice: Child Development from a Pediatrician's Perspective, Natasha T. Hays MD

This book was written to educate, interest, and inspire doctors, teachers, parents, and health professionals who work with children with developmental disabilities.

Medical information and treatment options are also included, as are references and footnotes for the reader who wishes to delve further into a particular topic discussed. The book is intended to be written in a style comprehensible to the general public but also of interest to the more medically sophisticated reader.
