About this book
Handbook of Clinical Child Neuropsychology
Edited by Cecil R. Reynolds, Texas A&M University
Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, University of Northern Colorado
The past decade has brought important advances in our understanding of the brain, particularly its influence on the behavior, emotions, and personality of children and adolescents. In the tradition of its predecessors, the third edition of the Handbook of Clinical Child Neuropsychology enhances this understanding by emphasizing current best practice, up-to-date science, and emerging theoretical trends for a comprehensive review of the field. Along with the Handbook’s impressive coverage of normal development, pathology, and professional issues, brand-new chapters highlight critical topics in assessment, diagnostic, and treatment, including:
- The role and prevalence of brain dysfunction in ADHD, conduct disorder, the autistic spectrum, and other childhood disorders.
- The neuropsychology of learning disabilities.
- Assessment of Spanish-speaking children and youth.
- Using the PASS (planning, attention, simultaneous, successive) theory in neurological assessment.
- Forensic child neuropsychology.
- Interventions for pediatric coma.
With singular range, timeliness, and clarity, the newly updated Handbook of Clinical Child Neuropsycholgy reflects and addresses the ongoing concerns of practitioners as diverse as neuropsychologists, neurologists, clinical psychologists, pediatricians, and physical and speech-language therapists.

From the reviews of the third edition:
“A useful, valid attempt to accomplish an integration of topics in an emerging field, representing both its diversity and its divergency.” (Contemporary Psychology, 43:9 (1998)
"Reynolds … and Fletcher-Janzen, who works in private practice, offer a handbook containing 32 chapters for psychologists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, pediatricians, and physical and speech-language therapists on clinical child neuropsychology. … chapters cover the history of the field, child development, malformations, intervention, neuropsychological diagnosis, and special topics such as coping and aspects associated with HIV." (SciTech Book News, March, 2009)
"This book reviews the field from the necessary training to specific disorders to treatment and rehabilitation. … The audience is primarily clinical child neuropsychologists, but students of psychology and neuropsychology would also benefit from the comprehensive coverage. … This handbook is filled with an abundance of useful information and guidance in the practice of child neuropsychology. Readers will find it a welcome addition to their library … ." (Christopher J. Graver, Doody’s Review Service, December, 2009)
