Abstract

There has been a tremendous growth of interest in child neuropsychology as a distinct subspecialty within the broader field of clinical neuropsychology. Whereas it was not too long ago that one could find only selected chapters dealing with children in some of the major texts within the field (e.g., Filskov & Boll, 1981; Reitan & Davison, 1974), there are now entire volumes devoted exclusively to the topic (Gaddes, 1985; Hynd & Obrzut, 1981; Hynd & Willis, 1988; Ivan, 1984; Obrzut & Hynd, 1986a, 1986b; Rourke, 1985; Rourke, Bakker, Fisk, & Strang, 1983; Rourke, Fisk, & Strang, 1986; Rutter, 1983; Spreen, Tupper, Risser, Tuokko, & Edgell, 1984). Likewise, there has been a proliferation of symposia, workshops, and journal articles covering various aspects of neuropsychological research and practice with children. All of this certainly attests to the emergence of child neuropsychology as a focus of vigorous interest and inquiry.
