Summary
Up until the early 1980s there were a limited number of tests used for diagnosing dementia, and those existing were severely limited in terms of accurate detection, particularly in individuals with intellectual disabilities. The last 25 years however have seen several neurological measures being developed to aid in this diagnosis, with treatment further branching out to include psychologists, psychiatrists, specialised nurses and neuroscientists, as well as clinical practioners. As such, this book contains a review of the most important neuropsychological measures currently used in the assessment of dementia by the principal clinicians and researchers associated with the tests. Clinicians and research workers, who have been at the forefront in developing the tests in question, provide clear practical guidance on the scope of each test, as well as an analysis of their accuracy and limitations. The international team of distinguished contributors have brought together a concise and practical guide to the multi-disciplinary work now encouraged to manage these disabilities; using their own personal experience, this title further analyses the effectiveness of the many popular treatment programs and approaches The end result is a comprehensive and authoritative volume which provides an essential handbook reference for all those working in the field of dementia and intellectual disabilities
