Book description

Pediatric neuropsychology is the practice of understanding and elucidating brain-behavior relationships as applied to children and adolescents. This 2007 volume examines trends in the assessment and treatment of common disorders including traumatic brain injuries, brain tumors, epilepsy, and autistic spectrum disorders. Its primary aim is to help practitioners and researchers identify and understand the evidence to support interventions with a range of acquired or congenital neuropsychological disorders. The text is divided into three sections. Section one provides a foundation by considering general issues relevant to assessment and treatment in pediatric neuropsychology. Section two guides practitioners in their approach to the use of interventions in a range of conditions and disorders, and the book closes with a section focusing on medical and experimental initiatives with an emphasis on interdisciplinary issues. This book is essential reading for pediatric neuropsychologists, child clinical psychologists and school psychologists, as well as pediatric neurologists and psychiatrists.

Reviews

Review of the hardback:'Hunter and Donders have edited an invaluable resource … Overall, there is no doubt that this resource will be more often off rather than on the bookshelf.'

Review of the hardback:'The book should appeal to a wide audience, providing a concise review across a broad range of neuropsychological disorders and related issues. By summarising the latest evidence and frequent discussion of 'future directions' the book provides an interesting picture of the current state of paediatric neuropsychology.'

Review of the hardback:'This timely review of intervention efforts should be mandatory reading for paediatric neuropsychologists.'
