Questions and Answers on Neuropsychological Evaluations
A neuropsychological evaluation is comprehensive battery of tests that provides a detailed picture of a person’s aptitude, achievement, and social and emotional status as compared to others at the same stage of development. Only a trained neuropsychologist administers such assessments. The evaluation involves a clinical history and interview, completion of standardized checklists, completion of paper and pencil tasks, hands-on activities, and computer-based tasks. This issue ofNASET’s Q & A Corner, written by Geraldine Markel, Ph.D., and reprinted with permission by from Doug Goldberg --The Special Education Advisor at www.specialeducationadvisor.com/about-neuropsychological-evaluations/ will address questions associated with neuropsychological evaluations.
