Written with the whole child in mind, this text presents disorders in the context of typical development and developmental pathways, providing a meaningful framework to promote students' learning and a practical, true-to-life approach for organizing the course. For each disorder (across descriptions of clinical presentation, course, and treatment), Parritz and Troy emphasize the continuity between typical and atypical development; risk and resilience; complex models of psychopathology; children in relationships over time; children in larger social contexts (e.g., neighborhoods); and the holistic nature of development (e.g., thinking about the child's abilities and strengths as well as his or her disorder). Updated with more coverage of neuroscience research and greater emphasis on the multiple environments in which children are embedded, this edition continues to reflect the most up-to-date understanding of child and adolescent psychopathology and empirically supported treatment.

Short-term or working memory - the capacity to hold and manipulate information mentally over brief periods of time - plays an important role in supporting a wide range of everyday activities, particularly in childhood. Children with weak working memory skills often struggle in key areas of learning and, given its impact on cognitive abilities, the identification of working memory impairments is a priority for those who work with children with learning disabilities. Working Memory and Neurodevelopmental Disorders supports clinical assessment and management of working memory deficits by summarising the current theoretical understanding and methods of assessment of working memory. It outlines the working memory profiles of individuals with a range of neurodevelopmental disorders (including Down's syndrome, Williams syndrome, Specific Language Impairment, and ADHD), and identifies useful means of alleviating the anticipated learning difficulties of children with deficits of working memory. This comprehensive and informative text will appeal to academics and researchers in cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and developmental psychology, and will be useful reading for students in these areas. Educational psychologists will also find this a useful text, as it covers the role of working memory in learning difficulties specific to the classroom.

Managing Attention and Learning Disorders in Late Adolescence & Adulthood A Guide for Practitioners Until recently, scant consideration was given to the impact of learning and attention disorders throughout the lifespan. Fortunately, the rising tide of popular concern, coupled with recent federal regulations regarding disabled adults, has fueled new research into these areas. As a consequence, there is now little doubt that LD and ADHD often persist throughout a person’s life and can pose serious personal, social, vocational, and emotional impediments. It is also clear that many of the concepts and strategies used in assessing and treating children with these problems do not apply to adults. Written by one of North America’s leading authorities in the field of attention and learning disorders, this book provides researchers and practitioners with the first comprehensive review of the impact of attention and learning disorders on adults. Just as important, it arms them with practical guidelines for the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of these disorders. In Part I, Dr. Goldstein explores the relationship between LD, ADHD, and various psychiatric disorders and traces their course and outcome in late adolescence. He compares and contrasts leading theories and conceptual models of LD and ADHD and reviews the research concerning the academic, vocational, personal, and psychiatric status of adults with histories of LD and ADHD. He then introduces a multidisciplinary model for evaluating the academic, psychological, neuropsychological, and emotional status of adults with histories of learning disabilities. In Part II, Dr. Goldstein and other well-known authors critically assess current treatment and support strategies. Among topics covered indepth are medical and nonmedical interventions, the latest drug therapies, contemporary vocational programs for individuals with histories of attention and learning disorders, college programs and services available to attention and learning disabled adults, and the legal rights of attention and learning disabled adults. Managing Attention and Learning Disorders in Late Adolescence and Adulthood is a valuable resource for clinical psychologists, counselors, social workers, and all other mental health professionals.

Here is a comprehensive introduction to language disorders in children...one whose two-fold developmental/contextual perspective acknowledges that children's language learning systems include not only their skills, knowledge, and biological abilities...but also their language background, family settings, and the context in which they are attempting to learn language. The text's primary focus is on perspectives from normal development, and the bulk of the coverage is devoted to examination of expectations for early (infant through toddler), middle (preschool through early elementary), and later (middle elementary through adolescent) stages of learning language. These developmentally-geared divisions are then used to guide discussions of language assessment and intervention for children who are not learning language normally, yet who have characteristics in common with their peers who are.
