Course Benefits

Several factors make this level of training valuable to practitioners:
  • In recent years, many of the commonly used assessment techniques (e.g., WISC-V, SB-V, KABC-II) have taken on a neuropsychological perspective and most practitioners need to update their skills;

  • IDEA reauthorization has allowed states to adopt a process-oriented model of assessment for LD eligibility rather then relying on a discrepancy identification model and practitioners need to learn this model, and

  • School psychologists are working with a growing number of children with known or suspected neurological conditions and they need to learn new skills to assess and intervene with these populations.

School Neuropsychology Test Kit & Materials Discount
