“This fine volume should be on the shelf of all neuropsychologists who see children, as well as child clinical psychologists and school psychologists. There is a wealth of instructive and practical information in this well-written and accessible book that has not been covered in this depth in any other work.”

—Nancy Nussbaum, PhD, Pediatric Neuropsychologist, Austin Neurological Clinic, Austin, Texas

“As an attorney specializing in medical malpractice cases that focus on pediatric brain injury, I review and evaluate traumatic brain injury cases on a daily basis. This book offers an excellent introduction to the leading edge of research, evaluation, and treatment in this complex area. It provides readers not only with the neuroanatomical knowledge needed to understand the clinical implications of brain injury, but also with the tools to assess the profound impact of this injury on the individual, family, and educational system. Comprehensive, intelligent, and readable.”

—Mark R. Mueller, JD, Mueller Law Offices, Austin, TX

“This book offers a thorough yet concise introduction to childhood traumatic brain injury. The breadth of content makes it an ideal resource for school practitioners involved in assessment and consultation. Even experienced practitioners will find useful information to guide their work with this population. In addition, students in graduate-level general neuropsychology courses will find it a valuable supplementary text.”
