Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Five Volume Set
Edited by:

September 2014 | 1 664 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

The study of developmental disorders is an enormous and intrinsically multi-disciplinary field of research. The articles in this five-volume collection cover the myriad genetic and non-genetic developmental psychopathological conditions which are now known and being researched from a variety of perspectives, from dyslexia to autism and beyond. Covering a broad range of considerations around the topic, the papers in this major work seek to capture historical antecedents, contemporary themes, conceptual issues and cutting-edge methods in the study of human neurodevelopmental disorders. Each volume opens with a contextualising introductory passage written by the editors and the volumes are organised thematically for ease of navigation:

Volume One: Disorder Typology and explanatory frameworks

Volume Two: Behaviourally defined developmental disorders

Volume Three: Genetically defined developmental disorders

Volume Four: Developmental disorders and the environment

Volume Five: Multi-disciplinary approaches to developmental disorders
