Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martha Glisky, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is the second edition of a book that provides information about clinical neuropsychology for general clinicians who treat children. It supplies information to help practitioners recognize signs and symptoms of possible brain impairment and provides a basic overview of the field of pediatric neuropsychology.
Purpose: The authors meet their objective of educating students and general child clinicians about various types of neuropsychological disorders and their clinical presentations. In addition, the authors provide information about available assessment instruments and their use in determining whether referral to a specialist is warranted.
Audience: Basic practical information about neuropsychology is provided for general clinicians who see children as a part of a professional practice, as well as for students in these fields. The explanations of neuropsychological terminology and procedures makes this a pragmatic resource for such readers. The authors are accomplished neuropsychologists who have experience with childhood disorders and assessment techniques.
Features: The book covers child development and disorders, as well as important signs and symptoms that should be recognized when screening for possible brain dysfunction. There are chapters describing each domain of cognitive functioning and the assessment tools available to screen for those deficits. There is a glossary of relevant terms provided, as well as appendixes providing lists of common assessment tools used and an example of a screening interview.
Assessment: This is a useful, introductory overview of developmental disorders and provides information regarding how to recognize and screen for clinical presentations of neuropsychological disorders. This book provides information about what neuropsychologists do and familiarizes the reader with current terminology. In the context of the new managed care environment, it is useful for general practitioners who may be required to provide a screening assessment before appropriate referrals to specialists are made. It is an excellent introduction for students in related health fields.
