Thierry Deonna, Eliane Roulet-Perez
January 2017 - $75.00 - Hardcover - 200 pages

It is characterised by a sudden or gradual loss of ability to understand of express language (aphasia) and usually occurs in children between the ages of 3 and 7 years. Rolandic epilepsy is the most common epilepsy syndrome in childhood with involvement of the oropharyngeal manifestations, hypersalivation and arrest of speech. These two syndromes are considered to be aspects of the ‘epilepsy-aphasia spectrum’ with common rolandic epilepsy being the mildest form and LKS the most severe.

Tics and Tourette Syndrome: Key Clinical Perspectives
Roger Freeman
April 2015 - $90.00 - Paperback - 304 pages
Unlike much of the literature on Tourette syndrome disorders, this book moves away from focusing on the tics and acknowledges that sometimes it is the disorder, such as ADHD, DCD, and OCD, that is the most pressing problem. Roger Freeman, considered a world expert in developmental neurology, shares his vast experience on tic disorders in an informal but highly informative style. He discusses recent advances in the identification and management of tic disorders that many clinicians may be unfamiliar with. Multiple illustrative case histories address many of the mistaken assumptions about tics that are made in everyday clinical practice. Extensive reference lists provide a rich resource for the both the clinician and the researcher. Paediatricians working in neurodisability and child development, child and adolescent psychiatrists and psychologist, neurologists and other health professionals who manage patients with tic disorders will find this book an excellent resource.

Spinal Cord Injury in the Child and Young Adult
Lawrence C. Vogel, Kathy Zebracki, Randal R. Betz, M. J. Mulcahey
January 2015 - $206.50 - Hardcover - 314 pages
As compared to adult-onset spinal cord injury (SCI), individuals with childhood-onset SCI are unique in several ways. First, as a result of their younger age at injury and longer lifespan, individuals with pediatric-onset SCI are particularly susceptible to long-term complications related to a sedentary lifestyle, such as cardiovascular disease, and overuse syndromes, such as upper extremity pain. Second, they experience complications, such as scoliosis and hip dysplasia, which may affect them both during childhood and as adults.

Persons with pediatric-onset SCI also have unique developmental needs. They experience the typical ongoing challenges of each developmental stage (e.g., childhood, adolescence) as well as changes owing to their SCI. Finally, individuals with pediatric-onset SCI face health system discontinuities, such as the transition from pediatric medical care to adult care and the transition from parent-controlled health care to self-management. This book is intended for clinicians of all disciplines who may only occasionally care for youth with SCI to those who specialize in SCI as well as clinical and basic researchers in the SCI field. Topics covered include new developments in pediatric SCI research, current standards for optimal care, areas lacking scientific evidence, and recommendations for clinical practice and future research.

Principles and Practice of Child Neurology in Infancy
Colin Kennedy
January 2013 - $49.50 - Paperback - 384 pages
This handbook of neurological practice in infants is designed to be of practical use to all clinicians, but particularly those in under-resourced locations. Seventy per cent of children with disabilities live in resource-poor countries and most of these children have neurological impairments. This book presents recommendations for investigations and treatments based on internationally accepted good practice that can be implemented in most settings. The book is divided into two parts: Principles and Clinical settings, with the latter taking a symptom-based approach. The contributors have approached their chapters using an accessible, didactic style and consistent organization of material. The emphasis throughout is on clinical methods, the use of appropriate investigations and treatments, and the avoidance of unnecessary or potentially harmful interventions. For quick reference, all chapters feature boxes highlighting key messages, common errors, and when to worry. The book is designed to be carried round as a handy reference.

Acquired Brain Injury in the Fetus and Newborn
Michael Shevell and Steven Miller
December 2012 - $200.95 - Hardcover - 330 pages
The editors take a pragmatic approach, focusing on specific populations encountered regularly by the clinician. They begin by addressing aspects of fetal neurology and the interpretation of fetal imaging studies. They then follow a “bench to bedside” approach to acquired brain injury in the preterm and term newborn infant in the next chapters. The contributors, all internationally recognized clinician scientists, provide the clinician reader with a state-of-the art review in their area of expertise. The final section of the book address special populations and concerns, areas that are largely overlooked in existing neurology textbooks. Each of these areas has seen considerable advances in the last five years and is of increasing relevance to the neurologist and neonatologist clinician. The comprehensive nature of each section (from basic science to acute clinical care to outcomes) should appeal broadly to scientists and allied health professionals working in neonatal neurology.
