Book Preface

Interest in the field of neurodevelopmental disorders has grown exponentially in recent years across a range of disciplines, including psychology, psychiatry, education and neuroscience. The research itself has become more sophisticated, using multidisciplinary methods to probe interdisciplinary questions. Neurodevelopmental Disorders: Research Challenges and Solutions provides a thorough overview of the key issues involved in researching neurodevelopmental disorders.

The volume includes fourteen chapters, arranged over three sections. Chapters in the first section address general research challenges for the study of neurodevelopmental disorders. The second section draws upon specifi c disorders (such as Williams syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, ADHD and Language Disorders) to consider the syndrome-specifi c issues or challenges that may be crucial to advancing our understanding of aspects of cognition and behaviour associated with them. The fi nal section considers how research evidence may be translated into practice to begin making an impact upon the lives of individuals who have neurodevelopmental disorders and their families. Each chapter in the book also includes ‘practical tips’ for either conducting research with individuals who have neurodevelopmental disorders or considering wider practical issues.

The book will be indispensable reading for advanced students, researchers and practitioners in the fi elds of developmental psychology, developmental psychopathology, special needs education, neuropsychology and neurodevelopmental disorders.
