Pediatric Forensic Neuropsychology is the definitive reference on the practice and process of civil forensic neuropsychological assessment of children and adolescents. An elite, knowledgeable, and expert group of authors were assembled in order to produce the first text dedicated specifically to pediatric forensic neuropsychology. This volume covers core topics pertaining to forensic neuropsychological assessments of children and adolescents, such as the role of pediatric neuropsychology in the courtroom, ethical issues, and practical issues in private forensic practice. Other chapters discuss the foundations of pediatric neuropsychological assessment, and include discussion of neuropsychological test selection, base rates, interpreting change, and sub-optimal performance. In addition, the text covers forensic evaluations of specific pediatric populations including those suffering postconcussion syndrome and mild traumatic brain injury, moderate to severe traumatic brain injury, and medical malpractice cases, as well as the independent educational evaluation. Further chapters discuss premorbid and post-injury factors, and conditions important in the forensic neuropsychological evaluation of children including moderator variables and diversity, psychological and psychiatric conditions, and ADHD and LD. The book is intended primarily for neuropsychologists who engage in forensic work. Although the topics will be of most interest to those who assess children and adolescents, the topics will also be of interest to neuropsychologists who conduct forensic evaluations with adults. The text will also be useful for attorneys, and medical professionals involved in forensic evaluations, such as clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and physiatrists.
