Ida Sue Baron. Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Child

Ida Sue Baron. Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Child


Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology 21 (2006) 247–248 Book review Ida Sue Baron. 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). Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Child is made up of three component sections: Child Neuropsychology Status Overview, Clinical Issues, Domains and Tests. In the Child Neuropsychology Status introduction, Dr. Baron delineates the important clinical differences between child and adult neuropsychology. She describes the types of referrals, explores test–retest issues, and discusses the current status and normative ideals for child neuropsychological data. The second section titled “Clinical Issues” covers such topics as intake, record review, history taking, behavioral observation, and the testing environment and rapport establishment
