Accessible and engaging, Developmental Disorders: A Neuropsychological Approach, is specifically designed to increase understanding of disabled children and their handicaps, thereby providing a sound basis for educating, treating, and living with them. It covers disabilities that are due to some malfunction in the brain and nervous system. Freides argues that an understanding of the workings of the nervous system, both its competencies and its failings, and the impact of the environment, is fundamental to the design of successful interventions. The book is both an introduction to the study of the brain as well as to developmental disorders. It will be helpful to college and graduate students in Psychology and Neuroscience, to professionals training to treat children with developmental disorders, to professionals working with such children whose training did not include study of brain function, and to the families and carers of these children.
