-Library Journal

“Provides a brief, easy to read description of over 200 different pediatric disorders as well as contact information for support groups and resources to aid those affected by these disorders… The value of this directory as a resource far exceeds any real or perceived deficiency that one can identify (e.g., lack of a topic or missed listing). It is a difficult task for the editor and staff to keep the directory current but they do a remarkable job. This directory will continue to serve its intended audience very well.”
