ABSTRACT: Neuropsychological evaluation provides for the precise measurement of discrete abilities subserved by given cortical regions, as well as systematic assessment of substrates of learning relevant to school settings. These data can assist the school psychologist in understanding learning problems and in developing appropriate intervention strategies. The following case study will demonstrate how the application of a neuropsychological model to the systematic interpretation of test data can provide the school psychologist with a useful approach to diagnosis and treatment of common school problems.
