Defined are causes of neurological impairment and methods of diagnosis. Symptoms (characteristics) of impaired neurological functioning are described, as are possible treatment approaches. Also examined are the psychological implications of this type of disability for the child and his parents, and the implications of neurological impairment in the bilingual/bicultural (minority group) child. Ten recommendations concerning treatment and programs conclude the pamphlet. (KW)
