There are three main groups of children who must be assessed neurologically with emphasis on minor neurological dysfunction. First, there are those in whom neurological disease in its initial stage is suspected; second, there are children with obvious neurological disorders, such as cerebral palsy, where it is important to discover all facets of neurological impairment in deciding upon treatment. In both these cases the examination technique must be refined enough to detect slight neurological dysfunction. Third, there are those children referred because of behavioral and/or learning difficulties without apparent neurological cause. It is with this third category that this book is mainly concerned. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and includes new discussion on the relationship between neurological dysfunction and behavior in children. It provides a refined, sensitive and age-appropriate technique for the detection of minor neurological dysfunction and is designed to take into account the developmental aspects of the child's rapidly changing nervous system.
