From autism to ADHD to learning disabilities, a guide for all teachers to this constellation of disorders.
Developmental deficits in learning and communication in young children are defined as neurodevelopmental disorders. This constellation, newly defined in the DSM-5, represents a range of issues that educators must address.
Neurodevelopmental Disorders: A Definitive Guide for Educators provides extensive and practical information to a range of professionals, and to all others who are interested in the complex and often misunderstood disabilities that fall within the general medical and psychological diagnostic categories of neurodevelopmental disability. Noted psychologist and educator Dr. Frank E. Vargo provides a comprehensive overview of neurodevelopmental deficits and disabilities, as well as of their related learning and cognitive processes, with a strong focus on educational considerations, applications, and relevance across academic areas and with a mind to global educational models.
Well researched and accessibly written, this book is an up-to-date and authoritative reference to all of the educational and clinical topics in the diagnostic categories of neurodevelopmental disorder. This informative book will provide a primary reference source for all educators, school and clinical psychologists, clinical mental health counselors and therapists, special education and medical professionals, and parents of children with special needs.
