At a time when neuropsychologists are becoming more and more responsible for program development, cognitive rehabilitation, and psychotherapy for patients with central nervous system dysfunction, this authoritative new reference provides a compendium of practical help. In it, leading experts present an integrated look at the most common pediatric neurological conditions and offer scores of strategies for accurate assessment and effective treatment. A unique contribution to the field of neuropsychology, this resource combines quantitative and qualitative assessment strategies while integrating test results to formulate effective treatment strategies. In each chapter the authors look at specific categories of neurologic disorders from both an assessment and a treatment standpoint and characterize them to show clearly the medical, social, and psychological variables that impact on the evolution of the disease or disorder. Rehabilitation professionals, physicians, and allied health professionals, as well as pediatric neurologists, neuropsychologists, and neuropsychiatrists, will find this work indispensable for increasing their knowledge of neuropsychological assessment approaches now being pioneered by experts in the field.
