Neurologically impaired children frequently are thought to be either all alike or all different. Hitherto there has not been enough consideration of differentiation or grouping of certain traits and problems, nor has enough attention been given to the fact that the same problem and the same child look different at various ages because the child and his circumstances change.

The book describes carefully methods that have proven useful to the author; it shows in detail processes of evaluation. The approach is always person-oriented rather than test-oriented.
