Recognized as the definitive reference in the field, this book addresses a broad range of biologically based disorders that affect children's learning and development. Leading authorities review the genetics of each disorder; its course and outcome; associated developmental, cognitive, and psychosocial challenges; and what clinicians and educators need to know about effective approaches to assessment and intervention. Coverage encompasses more frequently diagnosed learning and behavior problems with a genetic component as well as numerous lower-incidence neurodevelopmental disabilities. Illustrations include 12 color plates.

"The chapters are uniformly well written and cohesive; treatment recommendations follow nicely from the neuropsychological assessment strategies....Goldstein and Reynold's text succeeds marvelously in providing a comprehensive resource on genetic disorders and neurodevelopment in childhood. The book is to be recommended to clinicians including child psychiatrists, pediatric neurologists, general and behavioral pediatricians, child psychologists and neuropsychologists, and especially those who may be several years out of training and wish to update their knowledge of the relationship between genetics and neuropsychology. For the practicing clinician involved in the day-to-day assessment and treatment of children, this text is a required resource."
