Throughout the text, Baron, Fennell, and Voeller stress the importance of considering developmental appropriateness when working with a pediatric population. Their promotion of this perspective is enchanced by the provision of empirically based developmental trajectories for several behaviors (eg, motor movements) against which a given child's development can be compared. The authors also suggest strategies for retrospectively gathering "baseline" data so as to better estimate what abilities were spared, impaired, and/or repaired subsequent to neurodevelopmental insult. Further, they endorse interdisciplinary models and specifically address how neuropsychologists might most effectively interact with team members and communicate with schools.
