Editorial Reviews

Review

"This valuable work not only covers the field comprehensively, but also highlights areas of unresolved controversy, and includes suggestions for future research. It will be useful for all professionals who work with children. In my upcoming course on neuroeducation, this book will be at the top of the reference list."--Martha Bridge Denckla, MD, Director, Developmental Cognitive Neurology, Kennedy Krieger Institute; Professor of Neurology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
 
"The second edition of Pediatric Neuropsychology continues the splendid tradition of the first edition. The volume will serve professionals and students alike who need to increase their understanding of the neuropsychological aspects of specific medical or neurodevelopmental disorders. The quality of each chapter is exceptional. Kudos to Yeates, Ris, Taylor, and Pennington! This is an excellent, evidence-based read."--Stephen R. Hooper, PhD, Associate Director, Clinical Center for the Study of Development and Learning, University of North Carolina School of Medicine
 
"Since its original publication, this volume has truly set the standard for the field of pediatric neuropsychology. The second edition highlights how the field has grown over the past decade, not only in terms of assessment and research regarding cognitive deficits, but especially with regard to developmental and psychosocial outcome trajectories. It features incisive new chapters on developmental disorders and a greater integration of an interdisciplinary neuroscience perspective. This book is beyond doubt the 'go-to' text for graduate coursework and postdoctoral training in pediatric neuropsychology, and deserves a prominent place in the bookcase of even the most seasoned practitioner."--Jacobus Donders, PhD, ABPP, Chief Psychologist, Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, Grand Rapids, Michigan


"All of the chapters are written by notable experts in the field, and provide valuable information about each topic area and the current state of the research....Offers summaries and critiques of the state of the science for many of the common presenting areas seen in pediatric neuropsychology, written by the experts in our field, and is clearly a 'must-have' for students and seasoned practitioners alike."--Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology

Format: Hardcover
I can't believe nobody has reviewed this book yet! Quite simply, it is excellent. I read it cover to cover within a week of buying it (when it was first published). The editors assembled an excellent team of authors, all experts in the field they write on. It is clear, concise, and essential. This should be on the shelf of every pediatric neuropsychologist.
