While neurodevelopmental and genetic disorders are often diagnosed in childhood, understanding and managing the impact of these conditions is a lifelong challenge. This authoritative handbook presents cutting-edge knowledge to guide effective assessment and treatment throughout the adult years. Illuminated are the neurobiological bases and clinical characteristics of a broad range of conditions that affect learning and behavior as well as physical functioning and health. Following a consistent format, chapters comprehensively describe the developmental course of each disorder, the changing needs of adults, and ways to help them harness their strengths.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A beautifully crafted volume spanning a wide range of neurological and genetic disorders in adults, and representing the state of the science on these disorders. Giving special attention to the psychological and social impact of these disorders, the editors and authors have concisely presented information that will be maximally useful to both clinicians and researchers. This book will surely become the standard on this subject against which others will be measured."--Russell A. Barkley, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, State University of New York Upstate Medical University at Syracuse

"A 'must read' for clinicians and researchers alike. This straightforward, well-written volume offers breadth and depth on important topics that affect learning and behavior--such as adult learning disabilities, ADHD, autistic spectrum disorders, and anxiety disorders--as well as disorders with broader effects, including fragile X, Rett syndrome, and Prader-Willi syndrome. The Handbook provides a comprehensive, authoritative discussion of the neurological underpinnings of developmental and genetic disorders, and is an excellent companion to the Handbook of Neurodevelopmental and Genetic Disorders in Children."--Jack A. Naglieri, PhD, Department of Psychology, George Mason University

"This book serves as an excellent guide for the clinical neuropsychologist. The editors provide a ready reference for practitioners in need of up-to-date knowledge on a host of disorders often seen in practice. Covering a broad spectrum of disorders, each well-organized chapter is thorough yet concise. Highly recommended."--Robert A. Leark, PhD, Forensic Psychology Doctoral Program, Alliant International University


"The book is well written, and its introductory-level presentations are appropriate to the handbook genre in their attempts to convey and illustrate basic concepts and principles....Most useful to the time-pressed helping professional who seeks to gain a quick and clear overview of common and rare syndromes, their genetic and neuropathological bases, and the implications of current scientific knowledge for the appropriate diagnosis and treatment of individuals with these disorders."--PsycCRITIQUES
