Understanding and Using Neuropsychological Testing in the School
This workshop is part of the School Psychologist Roundtable Series.
Join Matthew Cruger, PhD, Senior Director of the Learning and Development Center and Neuropsychologist, Laura Phillips, PsyD, for a discussion around neuropsychological testing and how it can be useful in a school setting. The group will discuss referring a family for an evaluation, interpreting the testing results in plain English, addressing questions of legitimacy of the testing, and understanding when accommodations are really merited. The group will also review the challenges of talking to parents and teachers about testing. Attendees are encouraged to bring examples of cases to enhance the discussion.
