Recognized as the definitive reference and text on the relationship between brain health and behavior in children and adolescents, this volume is now in a third edition with 75% new material, including major updates throughout and numerous new chapters. Leading experts provide a neuropsychological perspective on medical, neurological, genetic, and developmental disorders that are frequently seen in clinical practice. The volume examines the impact of each condition on the developing brain; explores associated cognitive, behavioral, and psychosocial impairments; and shows how the science translates into achieving better outcomes for children.
