From the reviews: "Experts in this field provide a current review of specific topics in developmental disabilities in children and young adults in this book. ... It seems to be targeted at residents and general practitioners likely to be called upon to treat these patients within their practice. It provides a good basic reference for this purpose. ... This is a very readable and useful source of information for the management of children with developmental disorders within a general practice." (Michael G. White, Doody's Review Service, February, 2012)
