Description

This essential desk reference will meet the demand for a broad and convenient collection of normative data in child neuropsychology. In a clearly written, well-organized manner, it compiles published and previously unpublished normative data for the neuropsychological tests that are most commonly used with children. Far from being a raw collection, however, it integrates concepts and models central to the neuropsychological assessment of children into the discussions of data. All these discussions have a practical, clinical focus. As background, the author considers the current status of child neuropsychology practice, test models, behavioural assessment techniques, observational data, procedures to optimize child evaluation, communication of results through the interpretative session and report writing, and preliminary assessment methods. Then she reviews the tests and data under the broad domains of intelligence, executive function, attention, language, motor and sensory-perceptual function, visuoperceptual, visuospatial and visuoconstructional function, and learning and memory. Written by a seasoned practitioner, this book will be an extraordinary resource for child and developmental neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, child neurologists, and their students and trainees.show more

Review quote

With the publication of [this book] the discipline of pediatric neuropsychology is forever changed. Setting a new benchmark of scholarship in neuropsychology generally, and in child neuropsychology in particular, Dr. Baron's new book clearly is required reading for every member of the profession . . . Bringing together in one volume the vast expertise that only a seasoned and gifted clinician can offer, with the extraordinarily complete and well integrated research literature in child neuropsychology and the much-needed and anticipated coalescence of child test norms, she has presented the field with a tremendous gift . . . a major teaching vehicle for all students of the profession . . . a major resource for all neuropsychologists. Its contribution to the profession in terms of both its scholarship and practical utility is priceless; its publication pushes the "bar" several notches higher. * Joel E Morgan in Child Neuropsychology *show more
