Assessment Practices and Procedures in Children and Adolescents with Traumatic Brain Injury

This in-depth examination and discussion of how to assess the impact of traumatic brain injury on children and adolescents has a special focus on reintegrating students to school and the community. It is a much needed and valuable resource for rehabilitation clinicians, educators, psychologists, neuropsychologists and counselors in hospitals, schools, and private practice.

Pediatric neuropsychologist Dr. Stephen Hooper addresses the limitations of many current assessment methods with particular attention to the developmental impact of childhood trauma on cognition. He then provides a detailed framework by examining specific assessment constructs and procedures for motor functions, sensory functions, attention, language, visual processing, memory and learning, executive functions, and social and behavior functions. Each chapter has a special section on research findings and clinical practices for children and adolescents with traumatic brain injury (TBI) with recommendations for assessment procedures and measures with detailed tables for reference. This book is essential for all clinicians working with school age children.
