Summary

Developmental Neuropsychology draws upon the research of Alexander Luria and Lev Vygotsky to present a comprehensive study of developmental neuropsychology from a Russian, and Western perspective. Janna Glozman offers a fresh and accessible analysis of Luria and Vygotsky’s collaboration, which greatly influenced the field of neuropsychology as we know it today.

The text provides an examination of theoretical and methodological foundations of developmental neuropsychology, which Glozman describes and systemizes, before providing methods of assessment and neuropsychological aspects of specific situations. In her work Glozman considers:

  • abnormal social mechanisms
  • methods of assessment and remediation
  • historical developments
  • specific disabilities including dyslexia, ADHD and autism

Glozman’s comparative text makes Russian developmental psychology practically accessible to a western audience. It is valuable reading for researchers in developmental and clinical psychology, as well as professionals in special education, speech therapy and social work.
