This third edition of Bert Touwen s classic handbook has been updated by Mijna Hadders–Algra to reflect contemporary clinical practice. A new chapter assesses the reliability and validity of the methodology, and the book now includes norms for comparison, as well as practical management guidelines based on current clinical practice. Entirely new photographs and diagrams illustrate the assessment techniques clearly.
Videos illustrating typical and atypical performance and an electronic assessment form accompany the book. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for access
