Elsevier Australia is proud to publish Dr Sandra Johnson’s 'A Clinical Handbook on Childhood Development Paediatrics'.
'A Clinical Handbook on Childhood Development Paediatrics' is quite unlike comparable paediatric or child psychiatry textbooks. Combining a succinct study of childhood development paediatrics with practical advice on helping both child and family through all areas of the developmental process, this handbook is one of a kind.
Primarily aimed at trainee paediatricians, registrars and general paediatricians and practitioners, 'A Clinical Handbook on Childhood Development Paediatrics' will be of equal use to others who work with children – child psychiatrists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and physios, child health workers and paediatric nurses, to name a few.
Writing with the expertise and sensitivity gleaned from years working in paediatrics and child health, the author takes a practical approach, giving a comparison of normal and abnormal/normal development, and offering first-hand advice on history-taking, physical examination and assessment techniques for children.
Readers will find the book’s 15 chapters extensive but easy to follow. Topics include developmental delay, learning difficulties, attention deficit disorders, autism, Asperger syndrome, behaviour difficulties, language disorders, school refusal, bullying, foetal alcohol syndrome, emotional difficulties, neurological impairments that affect development, and motor coordination problems. There are also sections on special problems and illnesses reportedly increasing in incidence, and physical and psychological problems, which might be already present at birth, or which might become apparent later in life.
'The book's content is enhanced by Elsevier’s online StudentConsult portal, which features complementary case scenarios and study questions on autism, ADHD, truancy, cerebral palsy, child abuse and more.
'A Clinical Handbook on Childhood Development Paediatrics' was published in July and is now available to buy online. For your copy, visit http://tiny.cc/ghdkhw
