Acquired Neurological Disorders and Diseases of Childhood

  • Margaret Semrud-Clikeman

Though relatively rare compared to neurodevelopmental disorders, acquired neurological disorders and diseases represent some of the more common disorders seen by child clinical neuropsychologists. This chapter uses a transactional neuropsychological approach to review traumatic brain injury in children; exposure to teratogenic agents, including alcohol and cocaine; childhood cancer, and infectious diseases of the CNS, including meningitis and encephalitis. Research into these various disorders and diseases suggests the need for a transactional approach to assessing and treating children with these neurological conditions. Such an approach is particularly appropriate given the complexity of these disorders as well as the long-term effects that are present during and following recovery.
