Description

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, Dr. Hagerman 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. And 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.show more

Review quote

"This is an extremely important book that fills a wide gap between new fields that cross disciplines. Randi Hagerman writes from a physician's perspective about different genetically based syndromes, from Fragile X to Angelman Syndrome, from Fetal Alcohol to Williams Syndrome. She brings together broad clinical and research findings, as well as her experience with each syndrome as a premiere physician/researcher. In doing so, she illuminates the links between behavior, brain, and molecular genetics. Dr. Hagerman provides for the first time a depth of understanding of each syndrome, coupled with powerful treatment recommendations. ...This book is critical for clinicians, physicians, educators, and other professionals; in short, for anyone interested in developmental neurobiology. I highly recommend it."--Dr. Ursula Bellugi, Director of the Laboratory for Cognitive Neuroscience at The Salk Institute for Biological Studies"An exceedingly useful compilation and analysis of nine common neurodevelopmental disorders, most of them genetic syndromes, offering at once historical, clinical, and developmental data important to understanding cause, pathogenesis, natural history and treatment. This is supplemented by appendices on ADHD, teaching software, special education materials and equipment, bed wetting and general family support of great value to anyone dealing with a neurodevelopmentally impaired child or adult, and their families. A must for all clinical geneticists and workers in the field of neurodevelopmental disorders."--Dr. John Opitz, Professor of Pediatrics, Human Genetics, and Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Utah School of Medicine and Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Medical Genetics "This is an extremely important book that fills a wide gap between new fields that cross disciplines.
