9780123750686: Diseases and Disorders in Infancy and Early Childhood

Currently, there are two types of pediatric disorder books available: high level technical books geared toward pediatric specialists, and self-help books for parents.  The technical books cover diagnosis and treatment, while the self-help books cover general problems, are single authored, and speak little to the research of any given disorder.  This volume consists of focused articles from the authoritative Encyclopedia of Infant and Early Childhood Development that cover the research information on common disorders in age 0-3.  Topics include those most typically occurring, making them of great interest to both specialists and nonspecialists.  Disorders and dysfunction of a variety of types are discussed, whether cognitive, social, emotional, or physiological.  Coverage includes asthma, allergies, colic, bedwetting, diarrhea, genetic disorders, SIDS and learning disabilities, and provides an essential, affordable reference for researchers in developmental psychology, as well as allied health fields.

  • Written at a level for general understanding-allows for easy and quick grasp of information to both specialists and non specialists alike
  • Covers disorders across many systems (neurological, immunological etc) providing quicker access to info that would normally be dispersed across a wide literature
  • Written by research experts ensuring accuracy that is sometimes lacking in non-specialist books
  • Covers disorders, dysfunctions, and abnormal development in one place saving time looking at multiple sources for these related items
