Neuropsychology, Fact or Mythology, Educational Help or Hindrance?

pp. 322—330

ABSTRACT: A rationale is presented for the use of neuropsychological knowledge in the better understanding and treatment of the learning disabled child by the school psychologist. Four sub-groups of academic underachievers are identified in order to direct the psychologist to recognize the cases appropriate for neuropsychological assessment. A brief discussion of the validity and usefulness of neuropsychological knowledge for the school psychologist is included.
