Interest in the field of neurodevelopmental disorders has grown exponentially in recent years across a range of disciplines, including psychology, psychiatry, education and neuroscience. The research itself has become more sophisticated, using multidisciplinary methods to probe interdisciplinary questions. Neurodevelopmental Disorders: Research Challenges and Solutions provides a thorough overview of the key issues involved in researching neurodevelopmental disorders.
The volume includes 14 chapters, arranged over three sections. Chapters in the first section address general research challenges for the study of neurodevelopmental disorders. The second section draws upon specific disorders (such as Williams syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, ADHD, and Language Disorders) to consider the syndrome-specific issues or challenges that may be crucial to advancing our understanding of aspects of cognition and behavior associated with them. The final section considers how research evidence may be translated into practice to begin making an impact upon the lives of individuals who have neurodevelopmental disorders and their families. Each chapter in the book also includes 'practical tips' for either conducting research with individuals who have neurodevelopmental disorders or considering wider practical issues.
The book will be indispensable reading for advanced students, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of developmental psychology, developmental psychopathology, special needs education, neuropsychology, and neurodevelopmental disorders.
This book examines the Yugoslavian attempt to adapt Marx's 'Paris Commune' model of participatory democracy to the context of a one-party nation state, particularly with the representational system put in place between 1974 and 1990. It is the only book to examine in depth the attempted integration of worker self-management in the workplace with political representation at the levels of commune, republic and federation. It includes detailed references to many studies in Yugolslav journals, available only in Serbo-Croatian, on the effectiveness of participation in workplaces and local government. The extensive data provides information on self-management, representation, local governments, the league of Communists and other dimensions of the former Yugoslavia. It also provides a critical but positive assessment of the Yugoslav experiment in participatory democracy at workplace and communal levels that has significance beyond the Yugoslav case.
