Reviews

"This is a good choice for student researchers and provides information that goes beyond the clinical definitions and theories. The vast majority of materials written on this topic are intended for instructors or parents, so this volume may fill a gap in many nonfiction collections."--Ludington Library Reviews, January, 2011

— Kristen Todd

"This Issues is amazingly written, while it is aimed at the middle school reader High School students as well as Adults could learn something from this volume."--SWON Libraries, May, 2011
