...the text is well-organized, written in understandable terms and has the treatment and intervention options all in one place...Even with the Internet, it would be difficult to find the educational and treatment suggestions found in this text. Childhood Disorders: Diagnostic Desk Reference is an excellent resource and one may find it very tempting to sit and sift through the tremendous range of disorders/syndromes. (Tom Cushman, Ph.D. NASP Communiqué – September 2004)"Childhood Disorders Diagnostic Desk Reference" is literally the A to Z of childhood disorders and a must for all physicians who care for the pediatric patient.
