This book describes the causes, course, and treatment of a variety of developmental and genetic disorders, including attention-deficit disorder, Fragile X syndrome, and the autistic spectrum disorders. The volume places a particular focus on the course of disorders over time and outcome in adulthood. As well as providing succinct and up-to-date summaries of the most recent research, the authors give clinicians practical guidelines for intervention and management with children and young adults.
