Psychosocial Aspects of Neurological Impairments in Children

  • Margaret Semrud-Clikeman
Part of the Springer Series on Human Exceptionality book series (SSHE)


With the advent of new technological methods, the assessment of brain tumors, head injury, and neurological impairments through neuropsychological techniques has moved beyond diagnosis to determining educational needs and intervention strategies. It has become apparent that efforts now need to be directed at investigating and understanding the psychosocial needs accompanying these disorders. Many clients are provided with sufficient information about their intellectual and medical needs, but social and emotional areas are not as clearly explained nor targeted for interventions.
