Williams syndrome is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder caused by a genetic abnormality. It has played an important role in helping us understand the nature and course of cognitive development, and in particular, the relationship between genes, the brain, and the environment during development (providing evidence for the idea that the interaction between all three is important). For this reason, the editors of Neurodevelopmental Disorders Across theLifespan use this syndrome as a model disorder to consider cognitive development. The book brings together leading scientists from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and genetics to present the latest evidenceon development across the lifespan across multiple levels of description (genetic, brain, cognitive, environmental) within a cognitive neuroscience perspective.

Inquiry into signed languages has added to what is known about structural variation and language, language learning, and cognitive processing of language. However, comparatively little research has focused on communication disorders in signed language users. For some deaf children, atypicality is viewed as a phase that they will outgrow, and this results in late identification of linguistic or cognitive deficits that might have been addressed earlier. This volume takes a step towards describing different types of atypicality in language communicated in the signed modality such as linguistic impairment caused by deficits in visual processing, difficulties with motor movements, and neurological decline. Chapters within the book also consider communication differences in hearing children acquiring signed and spoken languages.

In framing the newest research within a lifespan perspective, the editors of this volume highlight the importance of considering an individual’s age in researching how bilingualism affects language acquisition and cognitive development. A key theme is the variability among bilinguals, which may be due to a host of individual and sociocultural factors, including the degree to which bilingualism is valued within a particular context.
