Neurodevelopmental Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment summarizes a vast body of literature concerning diagnosis and treatment for a variety of neurodevelopmental disorders, including both common and rare conditions.
Throughout the book, the author synthesizes treatment information for many disciplines that work together to provide multi-modality intervention. Psychopharmacological information and recommendations as well as the latest knowledge regarding genetic and diagnostic aspects of each disorder are explained in detail. All chapters have one or more case studies to model the treatment recommendations which are enhanced by extensive appendices reviewing educational programs, computer software, and supplementary reading. In addition, a detailed resource list of organizations, educational materials, and internet connections accompanies each chapter. This book not only integrates but also advances our knowledge of treatment, which is of prime importance for clinicians, therapists, educators, and parents.
