Neurodevelopmental Disabilities: Clinical Care for Children and Young Adults / Edition 1

Developmental disabilities or neurodevelopmental disabilities (includes intellectual disability) are a diverse group of chronic disorders that begin at anytime during the development process (including conception, birth, and growth) up to 22 years of age and last throughout an individual's lifetime. Major disabilities include intellectual disability, learning disabilities, communication disorders, autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy and neural tube defects. This book is a handy guide for practicing physicians and allied health professionals, who care for children and adolescents with developmental disabilities and their families. Written and edited by experts in the field engaged in the practice of developmental disabilities, this book provides a concise and easily accessible source on the subject. The consistent style, simplicity of presentation and numerous tables and figures enhance the understanding of complex concepts.
