This volume considers the neurodevelopmental disorders such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, clumsiness and indeed all those learning difficulties to be found in a 'normal' school population with an IQ of more than 70. Specific ideas about the causes of these disorders are presented along with very practical preventative and management information which will be welcomed by a wide range of professionals with an interest in paediatrics, neurology, developmental and educational psychology.

' ... an excellent review of a large body of literature.' The New England Journal of Medicine
' ... essential reading for anyone planning epidemiological research in this area, both to provide information on individual disorders and putative mechanisms, and to demonstrate the difficulties in population ascertainment and the definition of variables to measure.' Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology
