Overview

Recognized as the definitive reference in the field, this book addresses a broad range of biologically based disorders that affect children's learning and development. Leading authorities review the genetics of each disorder; its course and outcome; associated developmental, cognitive, and psychosocial challenges; and what clinicians and educators need to know about effective approaches to assessment and intervention. Coverage encompasses more frequently diagnosed learning and behavior problems with a genetic component as well as numerous lower-incidence neurodevelopmental disabilities. Illustrations include 12 color plates.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN(Madigan Healthcare System)
Description: There has been a recent proliferation of handbooks in pediatric neuropsychology. This latest entry is an update to a book originally published in 1999.
Purpose: The primary purpose is to provide information on neurodevelopmental and genetic disorders encountered in a pediatric neuropsychology practice.
Audience: The authors do not indicate a particular audience, but given the early chapter on neuropsychological assessment, neuropsychologists are the presumed target. Those in other disciplines also may find this compelling, such as child and school psychologists, child psychiatrists, pediatricians, and pediatric neurologists. The editors and authors have all made scholarly contributions to the field.
Features: The book is organized into three sections. The first section is an overview of the field, neuropsychological assessment of these disorders and diseases, and other evaluative modalities to aid in the assessment. Along those lines, the chapter on neuroimaging genetic disorders is well done with much more updated references than some other chapters. Each disorder is accorded a summary of the literature regarding structural abnormalities with color plates of MRIs demonstrating the differences. One drawback is that some are very small and difficult to see. A second drawback is the lack of functional neuroimaging, which could be much more valuable to neuropsychologists. The remainder of the book focuses on disorders with mainly learning and behavior issues, then progresses to disorders with more widespread deficits. This dichotomy is arguable and without clear merit. Although there is some useful information in these chapters, the neuropsychological content is much less than expected, and it is virtually nil in some chapters. The book generally has a much greater focus on pathology and treatment than on assessment or diagnosis. Nonetheless, treatments in some of the chapters are purely medical and of equivocal value to neuropsychologists or school psychologists. The inclusion of some of the figures or pictures is questionable. For example, a picture of three children with Fragile X syndrome has a caption that states the physical features of the pictured children are not typical of the syndrome. This space would have been better used to cover the major genetic disorders, but unfortunately some key disorders are omitted, such as Williams syndrome. Many of the references have been updated to as recent as 2009 and the index is reasonable.
Assessment: The second edition generally updates the literature and may be worth purchasing. Readers interested in an overview of the pathophysiology of genetic disorders supplemented by variable information on epidemiology, diagnosis, neuropsychological assessment, and treatment, will find this book a concise reference. Nevertheless, readers should not expect to find a dedicated handbook of neuropsychological assessment and treatment of these disorders. A more neuropsychologically-oriented book and a bigger bang for the buck is Cognitive and Behavioral Abnormalities of Pediatric Diseases, Nass and Frank (Oxford University Press, 2010).
From the Publisher

"This might be the book that special educators won't know they're missing until they crack it open. It has a wealth of information on disorders found in early intervention and special education--disorders that most teachers wish they knew more about. The focus on the interaction of neuropsychology and genetics is especially valuable for special educators. Students should have this book to prepare them for assessing and teaching all kinds of learners, and they should keep it as a reference when they are inservice."--R. A. McWilliam, PhD, Director, Siskin Center for Child and Family Research, Chattanooga, Tennessee
 
"An excellent introduction to the science and practice underlying the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of children with complex neurodevelopmental conditions. The Handbook is a terrific resource for clinicians in training, both in the classroom and when they are on externship or internship, as well as for those currently in practice. This updated second edition will become a 'go-to guide' for pediatric and clinical child neuropsychologists."--Scott J. Hunter, PhD, Director, Pediatric Neuropsychology, and Director, Clinical Psychology Training Program, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, University of Chicago "Having used the prior edition as a course text, I am very excited to see this second edition. Goldstein and Reynolds have maintained the level of excellence of the original work but have expanded the coverage to include all of the most frequent referrals for children. At the same time, the text provides coverage of low-incidence disabilities as well. This is an outstanding volume written by an impressive collection of scholars."--Cynthia A. Riccio, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, Texas A&M University
 
"This comprehensive handbook integrates the genetic and neurological aspects of neurodevelopmental conditions with the neuropsychological aspects. This excellent resource provides developmentalists and all clinicians who care for children with a better understanding and broader picture of neurodevelopmental conditions."--Mark L. Wolraich, MD, CMRI/Shaun Walters Professor of Pediatrics and Director, Child Study Center, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center
Child Psychology and Psychiatry Review

"A most useful addition to clinic and departmental libraries as an up-to-date reference volume on these important conditions. I shall also be recommending it to trainees as a good introduction to this range of developmental disorders and current knowledge and thinking about them."--Child Psychology and Psychiatry Review
American Journal of Psychiatry

"The chapters are uniformly well written and cohesive; treatment recommendations follow nicely from the neuropsychological assessment strategies....Goldstein and Reynold's text succeeds marvelously in providing a comprehensive resource on genetic disorders and neurodevelopment in childhood. The book is to be recommended to clinicians including child psychiatrists, pediatric neurologists, general and behavioral pediatricians, child psychologists and neuropsychologists, and especially those who may be several years out of training and wish to update their knowledge of the relationship between genetics and neuropsychology. For the practicing clinician involved in the day-to-day assessment and treatment of children, this text is a required resource."--American Journal of Psychiatry
