Goldstein (psychiatry, U. of Utah, and psychology, George Mason U.) and Reynolds (educational psychology and neuroscience, Texas A&M U.) present a handbook of 29 chapters that address the impact of genetics on the neurodevelopment of children, for neuropsychologists and other clinicians to understand, evaluate, and treat their disorders. Psychologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, neurologists, and others mostly from the US first discuss assessment, genetics, neuroimaging, and environmental factors, then specific disorders and syndromes, from anxiety and mood disorders to Down syndrome and neurofibromatosis and their genetic basis; course and outcome; associated medical, developmental, cognitive, and psychosocial challenges; and approaches to assessment and intervention. Revised, this edition incorporates new knowledge and clinical practices, as well as new topics like oppositional and mood disorders, and lower-incidence disorders like mitochondrial disease, major cortical anomalies, spina bifida, and inborn errors of metabolism.
