"This 'must have' text for all neuropsychologists is destined to be a treasured classic. In her definitive review of developmental defects, childhood disorders and hazards, and interacting demographic/social/cultural factors, Dr. Baron reinforces the foundational importance of early life events for understanding neuropsychological malfunctioning at all ages. The book also includes a comprehensive compilation of current knowledge of brain functions and functioning, a clinical guide, and assessment procedures for children--many of which apply to all other humans too. The gamut of examination techniques and tests, both old and new, are described with essential instructions and normative data including--for many tests--adult norms. Throughout this generous book pertinent case histories give enriching context to descriptions, guidelines, and data interpretations." -- Muriel D. Lezak, PhD, Professor Emerita of Neurology, Oregon Health & Science University "The practicing or aspiring pediatric neuropsychologist will find all they need in this comprehensive preference. Dr. Baron addresses a broad range of issues from theory to practice, from the clinical interview to providing effective feedback, and everything in between. Integrating research and the author's clinical wisdom/experience, the range of neuropsychological domains and tests are reviewed, using clinical case examples to make salient points. In this book, the reader will find in-depth and relevant answers to their questions." --Brenda J. Spiegler, PhD, CPsych, ABPP, Board Certified in Clinical Neuropsychology, Board Certified Subspecialist in Pediatric Neuropsychology, Director, Department of Psychology, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, ON Reviews of the First Edition of Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Child "With the publication of [this book] the discipline of pediatric neuropsychology is forever changed. Setting a new benchmark of scholarship in neuropsychology generally, and in child neuropsychology in particular, Dr. Baron's new book clearly is required reading for every member of the profession--from researcher to clinician--from beginning graduate student to senior mentor--child or adult oriented. . . a major resource for all neuropsychologists." -- Joel E. Morgan, PhD in Child Neuropsychology "This compendium provides an up-to-date summary of available norms for virtually every neuropsychological test we use, a Herculean effort." -- Lynn J. Speedie, PhD in Annals of Neurology
