Review:

"Captioned photos and diagrams illustrate each book and both volumes have source notes, a list of organizations and Web sites, and a bibliography that will be useful for report writers, debaters, and parents of children diagnosed with these disfunctions."
-- Booklist (October 2001) (Booklist 20011015)

"These books provide the kind of information that a student may need either for an assigned research project or for personal enlightment and assistance. Highly Recommended"
--Library Media Connection, October 2005 (Library Media Connection 20051001)

"Volumes explore causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment. New research techniques are described in detail. Each disorder is fully explained in non-technical terms."
-- School Library Journal (March 2003) (School Library Journal 20030301)

"Overall, the information...is more thorough and accessible than that in many books. Well-done and intuitively organized."
-- School Library Journal (May 2002) (School Library Journal 20020501)

"Primary-source quotes personalize the experiences. A solid addition to the mental-health sections."
-- School Library Journal (October 2001) (School Library Journal 20011001)

"Sheen covers its history, diagnosis, treatment, and solutions to some everyday problems associated with it. Black-and-white captioned photos are scattered throughout. A solid choice for students with a person interest or research requests on the topic."
-- School Library Journal (September 2001) (School Library Journal 20010901)

"Factful and useful books that approach their subjects as puzzlers for which great strides have been made in the last few decades in terms of diagnosis and treatment."
-- School Library Journal (April 2001) (School Library Journal 20010401)

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9-Two factual and useful books that approach their subjects as "puzzles" for which great strides have been made in the last few decades in terms of diagnosis and treatment. Girod offers a thorough description of Down syndrome, especially how it affects children and their families. The tone is optimistic, emphasizing mainstreaming and integration over sheltered workshops and institutions. Current information is included on the Human Genome Project, Targeted Nutritional Intervention (TNI), and drug therapies. This title compares favorably with Salvatore Tocci's Down Syndrome (Watts, 2000). Goodfellow clearly defines differences between idiopathic (of unknown cause) and symptomatic (resulting from an incident) epilepsy. He emphasizes how difficult diagnosis is, and how very different epilepsy is from more recognizable disorders. This text, too, downplays abnormalities and stresses that seizures can be expected and treated. It's more thorough than Patricia Emanuele's Everything You Need to Know about Epilepsy (Rosen, 2000). Both titles have functional but uninspiring black-and-white photos throughout.
