Edited by a leading expert in school neuropsychology, Best Practices in School Neuropsychology: Guidelines for Effective Practice, Assessment, and Evidence-Based Intervention addresses these challenges and their solutions and provides learning specialists and school psychologists with clear coverage and vital information on this burgeoning area of practice within school psychology. This insightful reference features comprehensive discussion of: Current school neuropsychological assessment and intervention models Best practices in assessing cognitive processes An overview of what neuroscience offers to the practice of school neuropsychology How school neuropsychology fits within a Response to Intervention (RTI) model The rationale for the importance of school psychologists' collaboration with parents, educators, and other professionals to maximize services to children Clinical applications of school neuropsychology with special populations, academic disabilities, processing deficits, and medical disorders Unique challenges in working with culturally diverse populations Featuring contributions from internationally renowned school psychologists, neuropsychologists, clinicians, and academics, Best Practices in School Neuropsychology is the first book of its kind to present best practices and evidence-informed guidelines for the assessment and intervention of children with learning disabilities, as well as other issues practitioners working with children encounter in school settings.
