This was one of the best sites I have found on child psychology. There was
extensive information on childhood disorders ranging from ADD to Downes Syndrome
and included information on testing, advocacy, legal aspects, and treatments.

I spent about an hour going through this site. The material was very thorough,
well written and easy to comprehend. This site would be an ideal resource for
many students and faculty members. I expecially appreciated the legal and
advocacy section. This was the first time I have seen this subject covered in
such a comprehensive fashion.

Technical Remarks:

This site was very easy to navigate. Moving from section to section was smooth
and all of the links functioned as they should.

This a interesting site that teaches the user in a simplified format. I read
about several disorders I had known about and learned about some that I had
never heard of before. The disorders Spina Bifida which is a defect that results
in cleft or mishapen spine that sometimes protrudes out of the victims back and
can cause serious physical limitations that can only be corrected with a series
of surguries. I also leaned about the disorder Prader-Willi syndrome which
prevents proper muscle development, causes an over active appitite that can lead
to over eating and obesity, learning disabilities, and some behavioral
problems.

Technical Remarks:

The site is set up in a simple way that makes it easy to navigate and locate
informnation. Unlike many sites that are congested with tons of information and
numerous links, this site keeps it small and simple.

I reviewed the materials on the site for approximately one hour. The site has
alot of information and accessible resources for assistance. Dr. Rene Thomas
Folse is both a licensed psychologist and Attorney at Law in California. Her
legal expertise provides a valuable resource. The website provides treatment,
resources and remediation information. There is even information about how to
become a "Child Psychologist".

Technical Remarks:

The site menu is all on the first page which makes it very easy to navigate
through. One negative comment is that some of the specific disorders were last
updated in 1997or 1998. Dr. Folse does provide her email for comments.
