This book assembles, for the first time, information required for the recognition, understanding, and treatment of behavioral problems resulting from neurological conditions. Its focus is two-pronged: 1) on conditions where cognitive-behavioral manifestations are major symptoms, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, and developmental language disorder; and 2) on conditions where these symptoms are significant but secondary, such as brain tumors, epilepsy, and AIDS.

This multi-authored guide also outlines effective approaches to behavioral therapy for these conditions. Pediatric Behavioral Neurology is an excellent resource for practitioners whose work demands knowledge of the symptoms, signs, and treatment of behavioral and cognitive disorders caused by brain abnormalities. It is comprehensive, yet concise and easy to use.


"The field of pediatric behavioral neurology has undergone rapid growth over the last few decades, but there are relatively few books that have attempted to provide an overview of the field that is of practical relevance to clinical management. This book therefore makes a major contribution."
