ABSTRACT: The search for the aptitude x treatment interaction for providing remedial services to learning problem children has not been a successful one. The neuropsychological paradigm seems to offer another approach built on strong theories to locating an appropriate treatment method based on the outcome of the assessment process. The conceptual requirements of the model are briefly described along with examples of how it might be implemented in school psychological practice. Although our theories and techniques are far from being perfected,they do provide a nomothetic guide to working towards the habilitation of learning for all children.
