Abstract:

This handbook covers basic neurodevelopmental research that any pediatric neuropsychologist will need to know. The authors discuss practical issues in pediatric assessment, and provide a comprehensive overview of the most common medical conditions that neuropsycholoigists encounter while dealing with pediatric populations. The book also describes a variety of professional issues that neuropsychologists must confront during their daily practice, such as ethics, multiculturalism, child abuse, forensics, and psychopharmacology. Also discussed are school-based issues such as special education law, consulting with school staff, and reintegrating children back into mainstream schools.
