Medical care for this population is frequently fragmented, a dedicated clinic has been shown in other centres to be associated with reduced morbidity and improved quality of lifeu00b3. A need for this clinic was identified in Ireland.AimOur aim is to establish if a dedicated clinic can identify and address unmet needs within this population.MethodThe intake forms and letters of all new referrals seen in the first six months were reviewed. Previous specialty input along with referrals made and investigations requested were recorded. Parents reported unmet needs and wishes were also recorded.ResultsIn the first 6 months of the 22q11DS Clinic 17 children were assessed. The attendance rate was 94%. Children attended from 8 counties around Ireland, aged from 8 months to 14 years. 18% of children had an affected relative(s). Parents reported a range of unmet needs and there was huge variation in previous access to services. Following their first assessment the following were requested: Blood testing (71%), renal ultrasound (29%), and specialist referrals (53%), most commonly to cardiology, immunology and dental. 29% of children had their appointment co-ordinated with another specialist on the same day.ConclusionWe have identified areas of unmet need in this dedicated clinic. It is hoped that we can improve care co-ordination further by engaging other specialists to run clinics on the same day and appoint a nurse specialist for this clinic.u00b9 McDonald-McGinn and Sullivan.

To first address the scientific information that is needed to understand the syndrome and the implications of current research, expert contributors present the results of current studies involving brain abnormalities, language/learning profiles, medical needs, and psychiatric and behavioral difficulties. These valuable chapters are written in a reader-friendly manner to help parents, professionals, and teachers gain useful and necessary comprehension of the unique characteristics of the 22q11.2DS population. The second part of the book is a practical guide to educating a child with 22q11.2DS from birth through adulthood. Divided into the various stages of development from preschool to adulthood, it includes information regarding the necessary tests special education teams should run, typical difficulties associated with learning, changes that occur with ability as the child matures, and behavioral problems in the school setting. New to the Third Edition: * Addition of recent research studies since 2012 * Current research and treatment options for mental health issues * Expanded and enhanced coverage of bullying and the social/emotional aspects of the syndrome * Discussion on the possibility of cognitive decline and how to address this at school * More information on Common Core State Standards and standardized testing for children with disabilities, including a section on understanding test scores * Homeschooling and other placement alternatives * Executive functioning deficits, their impact in the classroom, and approaches to use * Dealing with problem behaviors such as withdrawal and school refusal * Cognitive remediation and new treatment strategies * New math and reading remediation techniques * New options for programming and post-secondary placements

Book Description :

Abstract: Background: Children with chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS) often have deficits in social cognition and social skills that contribute to poor adaptive functioning. These deficits may be of relevance to the later occurrence of serious psychiatric illnesses such as schizophrenia. Yet, there are no evidence‐based interventions to improve social cognitive functioning in children with 22q11DS. Methods: Using a customised social cognitive curriculum, we conducted a pilot small‐group‐based social cognitive training (SCT) programme in 13 adolescents with 22q11DS, relative to a control group of nine age‐ and gender‐matched adolescents with 22q11DS. Results: We found the SCT programme to be feasible, with high rates of compliance and satisfaction on the part of the participants and their families. Our preliminary analyses indicated that the intervention group showed significant improvements in an overall social cognitive composite index. Conclusions: SCT in a small‐group format for adolescents with 22q11DS is feasible and results in gains in social cognition. A larger randomised controlled trial would permit assessment of efficacy of this promising novel intervention.

Book Description :

The thymus is a gland that over the last two centuries has generated great awareness not only from the anatomical perspective but also for the physiological and pat- logical roles it plays in many disease processes. Prior to the early studies on its th anatomy and physiology in the 18 century, the thymus was believed to perform - usual and curious functions such as purification of the nervous system, providing a protective cushion for the vasculature of the superior mediastinum, fetal nouri- ment, or more spiritual roles such as being the seat of the soul, among others. D- th ing the 19 century important anatomical/physiological studies took place focusing on the role of the thymus in pathological conditions. However, it was not until the th middle of the 19 century that a more comprehensive analysis of the role of the thymic gland and its role in pathogenesis began to emerge. Currently, while the knowledge gained on the diverse aspects of the thymic gland has furthered our understanding of its role in a gamut of processes, more knowledge is still being sought, and by no means is a full understanding of the gland’s physi- ogy and pathology complete. Different aspects, including its purported endocrine function, its association with other autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus erythematosus, among others, are under evaluation and research.

Book Description :

Primary immunodeficiency diseases (PID) are a group of disorders involving defects in one or more components of the immune system, and are characterized by an increased incidence of infections, autoimmunity, and malignancies. Although PID seem to be rare, the number of patients diagnosed has increased in recent years, and more than 150 different forms of PID have been identified. Nevertheless, because of inadequate medical awareness, a significant number of patients with PID are either not recognized as having a PID or are not diagnosed as early as they should be. Such delays lead to a substantial increase in morbidity and mortality among affected individuals. Our understanding of PID is improving rapidly, which will hopefully lead to more accurate diagnosis and efficient disease management. This book contains the most recent advances in the field, as well as a concise and structured review of previously identified PID. Although the book’s primary focus is on practical diagnosis and management, the pathophysiology of PID is also discussed. This book is a comprehensive yet manageable resource for physicians and nurses wishing to learn more about PID, as well as a useful tool for both doctors-in-training and specialists in clinical decision-making and treatment planning.

ìBy far, the most comprehensive and detailed coverage of pediatric neuropsychology available in a single book today, Davis provides coverage of basic principles of pediatric neuropsychology, but overall the work highlights applications to daily practice and special problems encountered by the pediatric neuropsychologist.î Cecil R. Reynolds, PhD Texas A&M University "The breadth and depth of this body of work is impressive. Chapters written by some of the best researchers and authors in the field of pediatric neuropsychology address every possible perspective on brain-behavior relationships culminating in an encyclopedic textÖ. This [book] reflects how far and wide pediatric neuropsychology has come in the past 20 years and the promise of how far it will go in the next." Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, EdD, NCSP, ABPdN The Chicago School of Professional Psychology "...it would be hard to imagine a clinical situation in pediatric neuropsychology in whichthis book would fail as a valuable resource."--Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology "I believe there is much to recommend this hefty volume. It is a solid reference that I can see appreciating as a resource as I update my training bibliography."--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society This landmark reference covers all aspects of pediatric neuropsychology from a research-based perspective, while presenting an applied focus with practical suggestions and guidelines for clinical practice. Useful both as a training manual for graduate students and as a comprehensive reference for experienced practitioners, it is an essential resource for those dealing with a pediatric population. This handbook provides an extensive overview of the most common medical conditions that neuropsychologists encounter while dealing with pediatric populations. It also discusses school-based issues such as special education law, consulting with school staff, and reintegrating children back into mainstream schools. It contains over 100 well-respected authors who are leading researchers in their respective fields. Additionally, each of the 95 chapters includes an up-to-date review of available research, resulting in the most comprehensive text on pediatric neuropsychology available in a single volume. Key Features: Provides thorough information on understanding functional neuroanatomy and development, and on using functional neuroimaging Highlights clinical practice issues, such as legal and ethical decision-making, dealing with child abuse and neglect, and working with school staff Describes a variety of professional issues that neuropsychologists must confront during their daily practice, such as ethics, multiculturalism, child abuse, forensics, and psychopharmacology
