“All of the chapters are written by notable experts in the field, and provide valuable information about each topic area and the current state of the research....Offers summaries and critiques of the state of the science for many of the common presenting areas seen in pediatric neuropsychology, written by the experts in our field, and is clearly a 'must-have' for students and seasoned practitioners alike.”

Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology (on the second edition)

“The first edition of this book quickly became a staple reference, serving as an invaluable resource for anyone interested in pediatric neuropsychology. Now in its third edition, the text has been extensively updated by an outstanding group of authors who have contributed cutting-edge, in-depth reviews of the most important neurodevelopmental and medical topics in the field. The third edition is simply superb—it is a 'must have' for researchers, graduate students and instructors, interns and fellows, early-career to seasoned clinicians, and all those preparing for board exams in neuropsychology.”

—Michael W. Kirkwood, PhD, ABPP-CN, Director, Rehabilitation Psychology and Neuropsychology, Children’s Hospital Colorado; Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, University of Colorado School of Medicine

“In this notable third edition, the expanded group of editors have updated the literature on previously discussed disorders and added chapters on a host of other conditions, ranging from congenital heart disease to various genetic syndromes. An exciting section covers emergent and controversial conditions. Throughout the third edition, there is increased appreciation of the fact that outcomes after pediatric brain insult involve not only cognition but also other important domains, such as social awareness and participation. Pediatric Neuropsychology continues to be the 'go-to' text for graduate and postgraduate training and desktop reference for scientist-practitioners in the field of developmental and neurobehavioral disorders.”

—Jacobus Donders, PhD, ABPP, Chief Psychologist, Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“Prior editions of this essential work were groundbreaking, and the third edition is equally so. It uses a biopsychosocial framework to integrate the many child, family, and environmental factors that influence the expression of biological risk and shape cognitive and behavioral outcomes across a wide range of acquired and neurodevelopmental conditions. The third edition incorporates recent information on genetic variability, neuroimaging findings, provisional disorders, and other cutting-edge topics. The book's organization lends itself to teaching. Most chapters have a similar structure, allowing comparison of unique and shared phenotypic features—such as executive dysfunction—across disorders. Additionally, each chapter uses a developmental lens to consider the trajectories of disorders across childhood and adolescence. This volume will undoubtedly become the primary authoritative reference for students in clinical settings, as well as for psychologists wishing to update their knowledge.”

—Linda Ewing-Cobbs, PhD, Harriet and Joe Foster Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience and Professor of Pediatrics, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston

“The third edition of Pediatric Neuropsychology provides an excellent foundational knowledge base. This book will be a helpful core text for graduate courses and for clinical practica with pediatric patients with neurological and neurodevelopmental disorders. The chapters present nuanced portrayals of cognitive and behavioral phenotypes for specific disorders and consider biological vulnerabilities, age of onset, developmental issues, and risk and resilience factors that interact over time.”

—Tricia Z. King, PhD, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Institute, Georgia State University
