Description: The study of developmental disorders is an enormous and intrinsicallymulti-disciplinary field of research. The articles in this five-volumecollection cover the myriad genetic and non-genetic developmentalpsychopathological conditions which are now known and being researched from avariety of perspectives, from dyslexia to autism and beyond. Covering a broadrange of considerations around the topic, the papers in this major work seek tocapture historical antecedents, contemporary themes, conceptual issues andcutting-edge methods in the study of human neurodevelopmental disorders. Eachvolume opens with a contextualising introductory passage written by the editorsand the volumes are organised thematically for ease of navigation:Volume One:Disorder Typology and explanatory frameworks Volume Two: Behaviourally defineddevelopmental disordersVolume Three: Genetically defined developmentaldisordersVolume Four: Developmental disorders and the environmentVolume Five:Multi-disciplinary approaches to developmental disorders
