Neuropsychology of Infants and Young Children

Part of the Human Brain Function book series (HBFA)


This Chapter is intended to provide a framework for the neurobehavioral investigation and assessment of infants and young children (i.e., those under 5 years of age), and to discuss the relevance of those assessments to clinical interventions with at-risk children. A selected survey of the increasing knowledge base regarding brain-behavior relationships that is especially pertinent in this age range is included. We also emphasize three functional domains of particular interest in this age range: attention, memory, and executive function. Our goal is to challenge clinicians to develop concepts about brain-behavior relationships in this age group, and to provide a basis for clinicians to generate hypotheses in their own clinical evaluations and effect appropriate interventions. Our objective is not to provide an exhaustive listing of tests and measures, but instead to consider the functional domains for which a judicious selection of tests can be made. We hope to convince the reader that neuropsychological services provided in early childhood do not depend merely on the administration of test measures but instead on the knowledge of unique brain-behavior relationships that are applicable within this age range, their direct application to these early periods of development, and their relevance beyond these early years.
