Product description


‘The state of the art reviews in this useful volume cast new light on atypical development, and in doing so they also tell us much about the typically developing mind’. – Uta Frith, UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UK

Neurodevelopmental Disorders covers the state of the art in a fast-moving research field that is perennially popular with students. The authors are all experts in their field, and the book offers an original survey of different disorders and the practical issues involved in researching them’. – Martin Doherty, School of Psychology, University of East Anglia, UK

‘I teach Neurodevelopmental Disorders at both undergraduate and Master’s levels and have not found a book of similar quality that I can recommend to my students. It provides the reader with a clear understanding of the unique and shared features of neurodevelopmental disorders. The discussion of methodological issues will enable students to critically evaluate published work more effectively, and think critically about their own research designs. The practical tips are also extremely useful for students planning postgraduate and undergraduate research studies.’ – Pamela Heaton, Department of Psychology, Goldsmiths University of London, UK

'This carefully edited and well organised text provides up-to-the-minute and essential thinking on neurodevelpmental issues, combining rigorous research, clear explanations and thoughtful analysis. It should be a boon to all child mental health professionals and a must-have reference for neuropsychologists and anyone working with developmental disorders.' – Graham Music, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, Tavistock and Portman Clinics, London, UK
