Edited by two leading authorities and written by a team of international experts in the field, this book describes the causes, course and treatment of a variety of developmental and genetic disorders, including attention-deficit disorder, fragile X syndrome and the autistic spectrum disorders. There is a particular focus on the course of disorders over time, and outcome in adulthood. Outcome is an area often overlooked in other books about developmental disorders, but is an issue of great importance to parents and carers and one that has important implications for education, health, social and employment services. As well as providing succinct and up-to-date summaries of the most recent research, the authors give clinicians practical guidelines for intervention and management with children and young adults. This book is essential reading for clinicians and psychologists, and anyone working with or caring for children with special educational needs.

• Only book available to focus on course and outcomes over time • Gives succinct, up-to-date reviews of recent research, and also guidelines for intervention and management • Written and edited by world authorities

Reviews

'The book is essential reading for any clinician involved with children or adults with developmental neuropsychiatric disorders. I highly recommend it.' Doody's Electronic Journal

'I enjoyed this book. The twelve chapters are written by researchers in the various disorders and all convey the scholarly enthusiasm of their authors.' Infant & Child Development

'… belying its title, this covers all aspects, including aetiology, clinical presentation, and treatment. Initial doubts were soon set aside: this is a rapidly development field and I learned much that was new … I found this an easy read … I would recommend this book to everyone who has to wrestle with the diagnosis of a developmental disorder and its implications.' Journal of Child Psychology & Psychiatry
