Summary

This book assembles, for the first time, information required for the recognition, understanding, and treatment of behavioral problems resulting from neurological conditions. Its focus is two-pronged: 1) on conditions where cognitive-behavioral manifestations are major symptoms, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, and developmental language disorder; and 2) on conditions where these symptoms are significant but secondary, such as brain tumors, epilepsy, and AIDS.
This multi-authored guide also outlines effective approaches to behavioral therapy for these conditions. Pediatric Behavioral Neurology is an excellent resource for practitioners whose work demands knowledge of the symptoms, signs, and treatment of behavioral and cognitive disorders caused by brain abnormalities. It is comprehensive, yet concise and easy to use.
