We are most pleased to present Volume 3 of Developmental-Behavioral Disorders: Selected Topics, designed to serve as a companion for standard reference textbooks that address cogent issues in developmental pediยญ atrics. Periodic publications such as Selected Topics and theme-related articles, as well as continuing education programs, attempt to suppleยญ ment in a timely fashion the rapidly changing knowledge base in develยญ opmental-behavioral pediatrics. These media are important as forums for enhancing the quality of clinical practice, teaching skills, and reยญ search activities. The need is critical for periodically disseminating and updating information about issues in developmental medicine, in as much as this field of study continues to expand at a meteoric pace. During the past several decades, developmental medicine has been recognized as a defined subspecialty in pediatrics. The spectrum of problems encompassed by this discipline is relatively broad and at times clinically overwhelming. The ultimate goal of preventing delays, disorยญ ders, and/or dysfunctions from becoming chronic handicapping condiยญ tions has, by volume per se, created clinical dilemmas for pediatric health care providers. There are numerous facets of providing efficient and effective care, which in the field of developmental-behavioral pediatrics are often exaggerated impediments to the delivery of services by priยญ mary health care specialists, e. g. , time, clinical skills, need for interยญ disciplinary management, medical-legal responsibilities, financial reimยญ bursements. These issues, as well as clinical problems, are still very much part of the information base to be disseminated to concerned proยญ fessionals
