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.
