About this book

Developmental disabilities or neurodevelopmental disabilities (includes intellectual disability) are a diverse group of chronic disorders that begin at anytime during the development process (including conception, birth, and growth) up to 22 years of age and last throughout an individual’s lifetime. Major disabilities include intellectual disability, learning disabilities, communication disorders, autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy and neural tube defects.

 

This book is a handy guide for practicing physicians and allied health professionals, who care for children and adolescents with developmental disabilities and their families. Written and edited by experts in the field engaged in the practice of developmental disabilities, this book provides a concise and easily accessible source on the subject. The consistent style, simplicity of presentation and numerous tables and figures enhance the understanding of complex concepts.

“Experts in this field provide a current review of specific topics in developmental disabilities in children and young adults in this book. … It seems to be targeted at residents and general practitioners likely to be called upon to treat these patients within their practice. It provides a good basic reference for this purpose. … This is a very readable and useful source of information for the management of children with developmental disorders within a general practice.” (Michael G. White, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2012)

“A very useful book for pediatricians, developmental health professionals, pediatric neurologists and psychologists. … This volume reviews in 31 chapters the diagnosis, discusses the wide spectrum of pathology as part of a series of diseases and body systems, as well as outcomes and counseling.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 9 (1), September, 2011)
