This volume consists of articles which summarize both theoretical perspectives and research themes from the project "Multidisability, Family, and Childhood" which was carried out at the Department of Special Education in the University of Jyvaskyla from 1990 to 1993. All writers have participated in the project as consultants or researchers. The chapters cover a variety of topics on the theme of early childhood special education.
