Workshop Description

Advances in neuroscience and neuropsychology have revolutionized our thinking about how children learn and behave in the classroom. This introductory workshop will reveal how brain–behavior relationships affect classroom learning and behavior and how patterns of neuropsychological performance can be examined for both psychological evaluation and intervention purposes. Evidence suggests that brain–behavior principles and neuropsychological practices should be incorporated in the schools and can be used to evaluate response-to-intervention. A case study will highlight how a neuropsychological approach fostered an accurate appraisal of a child's needs and ultimately led to intervention efficacy.
