Pediatric Neuropsychology: Perspectives in an Ambulatory Care Setting provides an overview of the most commonly seen conditions in outpatient settings including ADHD, autism, congenital heart disease, blood cancer and hematologic conditions, brain tumors, and epilepsy. Each chapter provides up-to-date information on these pediatric neurodevelopmental and medical disorders, including a review of the neuroanatomic contributions as well as an overview of the neuropsychological findings. Alongside the neuroanatomic and neuropsychological underpinnings, case examples and intervention recommendations are provided for parents, educators and others who work with these populations, to enhance the ecological validity of neuropsychological assessments. With reference to the latest diagnostic criteria, this book is an invaluable resource for neuropsychologists or neuropsychology students whose work includes pediatric patients with neurodevelopmental and neuromedical disorders. It is designed to provide practical information but also the most current research in neurobiological and neuroanatomical contributions of these disorders to inform the practitioner and enhance the care provided to their pediatric patients.
