MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Current brain research is reshaping how we view educational diagnoses and interventions, and there is a growing interest in how neuropsychology can be applied to educational practice. Best Practices in School Neuropsychology features guidelines from internationally renowned researchers and clinicians on evidence-based assessment and intervention techniques. This wellspring of information for school neuropsychologists, psychologists, child psychologists, special educators, learning specialists, educational diagnosticians, and graduate students covers every area of professional and practice issues, including assessing and intervening with special populations, students with academic disabilities, those with processing deficits, and those with medical disorders.
