Grounded in current best practices, this unique volume describes how to intervene effectively to promote the optimal health and functioning of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. Leading scientist-practitioners discuss the psychosocial aspects of a range of acquired and congenital disorders and how they can be targeted in assessment and treatment. Presented are innovative approaches to managing cognitive, emotional, and behavioral challenges; enhancing participation in social activities and school; and facilitating family problem solving. Particular attention is given to ways that psychologists, health professionals, and educators can collaborate to meet children's changing rehabilitation needs over the course of development.

Industry Reviews

'This is an important book that is unique both in its coverage of common neurodevelopmental disabilities, including visual, hearing, and motor impairments, and in its emphasis on evidence-based practice. The book will be a useful reference for pediatric neuropsychologists, applied developmental psychologists, and other professionals working in the fields of pediatric rehabilitation and developmental disabilities, and will also be a valuable text for graduate students and advanced trainees in those fields. The editors and contributors are actively involved in research and clinical practice, so the chapters are very well informed and represent the state of the art in assessment and intervention.' - Keith Owen Yeates, PhD, Department of Pediatrics, The Ohio State University
