Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Child The author notes that the genesis of the writing of “Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Child” was frustration with trying to determine what tests are available for children of different ages and what narrative data could be responsibly applied. Dr. Baron outlines her focus on available individual data sets rather than reviewing readily available battery information. The text is based on the author’s clinical experience and is significantly different in format and coverage than such edited texts in the field as Pediatric Neuropsychology (Yeates, Ris, & Taylor, 2000) and Handbook of Clinical Child Neuropsychology (Reynolds & Fletcher-Janzen, 1997).
