This work presents precise instructions on how to perform and record the neurological examination perfected by Dr. Claudine Amiel-Tison, one of the world's foremost neurodevelopmental neonatologists. This standardized neurological examination can be used in NICU follow-up clinics and in reporting neurological outcomes in clinical research studies. The text makes a special contribution by explaining how to interpret deviations from the norm and is especially useful for assessing children with neurological problems (such as cerebral palsy) or children with a risk of developing them (particularly those born very prematurely). Featuring dozens of detailed illustrations, the book presents a single tool for the neurological examination of children from birth to school age in an effort to meet the specific needs of clinicians, researchers and administrators. For these needs to be met, the clinical assessment tool must be both systematic and precise. It must be based on a fixed set of observations and manoeuvres, and results must be scored according to the child's age - since cerebral maturation, especially during the first year, will constantly modify the results. With these goals in mind, the authors present a basic neurological examination appropriate for daily paediatric practice, one that can be used throughout infancy and childhood, while avoiding the dual pitfalls of oversimplification and extreme complexity. Co-written by a recognized specialist, the book should prove to be a useful tool for professionals in paediatrics. The book was published in French in 1998 by Hopital Sainte-Justine at the University of Montreal.

"This will become a very important book in the field of neurodevelopmental followup and NICU outcomes. It is very clearly written and very practical, and offers an excellent explanation of how to interpret deviations from the norm. The inclusion of 'typical abnormal outcomes' is especially helpful." -- Marilee C. Allen, M.D., The Johns Hopkins University School of MedicineAbout the Author:
