Author: by Caren Haines
National Parenting Products Award (NAPPA) Award Winner! Up to 30% of all children have undiagnosed seizure disorders because they are difficult to diagnose due to a lack of awareness and understanding. Caren Haines, with renowned behavioral child neurologist Nancy Minshew, MD, is determined to change that.
At age two, author Caren Haines’ son was diagnosed with autism. By the time he was twelve, his diagnosis didn’t account for his uncontrollable aggression, the acrid smells that lingered in his mind, and the odd voices that screamed at him from inside his head.
By the time he was eighteen, his out-of-control behavior mirrored a mood disorder with psychotic features. Silently Seizing: Common, Unrecognized and Frequently Missed Seizures and Their Potentially Damaging Impact on Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorders – An Essential Guide for Parents and Professionals begins with a close-up look at this family’s journey and examines a disorder that cannot always be identified in a clinical setting.

13. Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Epilepsy (Clinical Handbooks in Neuropsychology)
Author: by William B. Barr
Once feared and misunderstood even among the medical community, epilepsy has since largely been demystified. Besides the characteristic seizures, various cognitive, behavioral, and emotional difficulties are recognized as associated with the condition, and patients are finding relief in medical management and/or surgical intervention.
Not surprisingly, neuropsychology has emerged as a major component in treatment planning, program development, and assessment of surgical candidates. Geared toward beginning as well as veteran clinicians, the Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Epilepsy offers readers a skills-based framework for assessment and treatment, using current evidence and standardized terminology.
Expert coverage reviews widely-used methods for evaluating key aspects of patient functioning (MRI, MEG, electrocortical mapping, the Wada test), and presents guidelines for psychotherapeutic and cognitive remediation strategies in treating comorbid psychiatric conditions. Given the diversity of the patient population, additional chapters spotlight issues specific to subgroups including high- and low-functioning as well as geriatric and pediatric patients.
