Understanding Williams Syndrome: Behavioral Patterns and Interventions

Understanding Williams Syndrome: Behavioral Patterns and Interventions Lowest new price: $72.03
Lowest used price: $68.90
List price: $86.95
Author: Eleanor Semel
Brand: Brand: Routledge

Comprehensive and readable, Understanding Williams Syndrome: Behavioral Patterns and Interventions is an essential guide for all those professionally, scientifically, or personally involved with this so frequently misunderstood and underserved population--psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other mental health professionals; special educators and vocational counselors; speech-language, physical, and occupational therapists; audiologists; physicians; and parents.
 
In the last 20 years, Williams syndrome has captured the interest of large numbers of scientists and attracted considerable media attention in spite of its rarity (estimated at no more than one in 30,000 births). Those diagnosed display a unique pattern of behavioral, cognitive, and physical limitations and strengths with fascinating neurogenetic implications--a pattern that poses enormous challenges to their parents and caregivers.

The authors, a specialist in learning disabilities and a developmental psychologist, review basic information about Williams syndrome, its medical conditions, paradoxical profile, and neurobiological mechanisms; and discuss distinctive features of the language and perceptual and motor performance of children and adults with the syndrome. 
 
Other features include:
* Strategies for working with patients.
* An examination of the difference between Williams syndrome and other developmental disorders.
* Problem-specific alternatives for treatment.
* Analysis of new directions in research, clinical intervention, education, and systems for care delivery.
 

Throughout, they stress variations among individuals and subgroups in ability level, skills, talents, and problem severity; and emphasize the necessity of recognizing these components in planning treatment on an individual basis.

Conversations With Neil's Brain: The Neural Nature Of Thought And Language

Conversations With Neil's Brain: The Neural Nature Of Thought And Language Lowest new price: $6.90
Lowest used price: $1.80
List price: $18.95
Author: William H. Calvin

In a series of stories before, after, and even during neurosurgery, an epileptic patient, Neil; his surgeon, George Ojemann; and neuroscientist William Calvin work together to remove a portion of Neil's temporal lobe. If they do it right, they will have a good chance of putting an end to Neil's seizures. If they slice too far to the left or right, they will wipe out essential parts of Neil's memory, or his ability to follow a joke to the punch line, or maybe his ability to recognize his wife's face. In essence, they can erase or alter parts of Neil.Conversations with Neil's Brain takes us inside the operating room and allows us to be part of this eerie process of discovery, using it to provide a unique window on human consciousness and the nature of human identity. The mapping of Neil's brain brings to life as never before the astounding specificity by which the brian operates, making clear why language, memory, and decision making are so complex, and why the cures for such ailments as learning disabilities, mental disorders, Alzheimer's, and strokes continue to elude the world's best medical efforts. In the context of this unique surgical drama, Conversations with Neil's Brain unfolds as an intensely compelling read.

    A Compendium of Tests, Scales and Questionnaires: The Practitioner's Guide to Measuring Outcomes after Acquired Brain Impairment

    A Compendium of Tests, Scales and Questionnaires: The Practitioner's Guide to Measuring Outcomes after Acquired Brain Impairment Lowest new price: $206.96
    Lowest used price: $189.99
    List price: $265.00
    Author: Robyn L. Tate

    This Compendium is a comprehensive reference manual containing an extensive selection of instruments developed to measure signs and symptoms commonly encountered in neurological conditions, both progressive and non-progressive. It provides a repository of established instruments, as well as newly-developed scales, and covers all aspects of the functional consequences of acquired brain impairment.

    In particular, the text provides a detailed review of approximately 150 specialist instruments for the assessment of people with neurological conditions such as dementia, multiple sclerosis, stroke and traumatic brain injury. Part A presents scales examining body functions, including consciousness and orientation; general and specific cognitive functions; regulation of behaviour, thought, and emotion; and motor-sensory functions. Part B reviews scales of daily living activities and community participation. Part C focuses on contextual factors, specifically environmental issues, and Part D contains multidimensional and quality of life instruments.

    Each instrument is described in a stand-alone report using a uniform format. A brief history of the instrument's development is provided, along with a description of item content and administration/scoring procedures. Psychometric properties are reviewed and a critical commentary is provided. Key references are cited and in most cases the actual scale is included, giving the reader easy access to the instrument. The structure of the book directly maps onto the taxonomy of the influential International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (World Health Organization, 2001), enabling linkage of clinical concepts across health conditions.

    The Compendium will be a valuable reference for clinicians, researchers, educators, and graduate students, and a practical resource for those involved in the assessment of people with brain impairment.

    The book is accompanied by a password protected website. For a one-off payment, purchasers of the book can gain online access to the majority of the tests, scales and questionnaires featured in the book as downloadable PDFs. See inside the book for more details.

    Pediatric neuropsychology is the practice of understanding and elucidating brain-behavior relationships as applied to children and adolescents. This 2007 volume examines trends in the assessment and treatment of common disorders including traumatic brain injuries, brain tumors, epilepsy, and autistic spectrum disorders. Its primary aim is to help practitioners and researchers identify and understand the evidence to support interventions with a range of acquired or congenital neuropsychological disorders. The text is divided into three sections. Section one provides a foundation by considering general issues relevant to assessment and treatment in pediatric neuropsychology. Section two guides practitioners in their approach to the use of interventions in a range of conditions and disorders, and the book closes with a section focusing on medical and experimental initiatives with an emphasis on interdisciplinary issues. This book is essential reading for pediatric neuropsychologists, child clinical psychologists and school psychologists, as well as pediatric neurologists and psychiatrists.
