Beschreibung

This handy desk reference provides the first compilation of cross-cultural normative data for individual child neuropsychological tests. Far from being a collection of raw data, however, it incorporates models and concepts central to the neuropsychological assessment of children. Readers will appreciate the author's clinical focus as she discusses tests and data within 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 neuro-logists, and their students and trainees.

Pressestimmen

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
