ABSTRACT: This article describes a new subdiscipline of neuropsychology in which the application of behavioral principles in the remediation and rehabilitation of organically induced behavior problems is seen as consistent with traditional neuropsychological assessment practices.Considering the recent interest by school psychologists in developing a neuropsychological perspective in the diagnosis and treatment of children with learning problems, an overview of this approach may benefit school psychologists. Theoretical issues, empirical considerations,and future directions pertaining to this area of expertise are discussed with special reference to the practice of school psychology.
