Concise, practical manual for improving the quality of neuropsychological evaluations
Long and short report formats and sample wording are tremendous time savers
Fills the gap between academic neuropsychology instruction and real-world practice
Appendices include neuropsychological questionnaire, short- and long-report formats, and sample statements for sections of the neuropsychological report that are especially challenging to write
Many outcomes may hinge on a neuropsychology evaluation, from the awarding of money to the granting of custody. Assessment of mental, motor, and related functions must be accurate and results reported in clear detail to contribute to an informed judgment. For the practitioner just starting to compose evaluation reports, this can be a daunting prospect, especially if one is still mastering the language of the field and its clinical nuances.
The Neuropsychology Toolkit jump-starts confidence and competence by identifying common evaluation errors—of omission, commission, and misjudgment—and providing a solid framework for avoiding them. Geared toward best practice as well as clear communication, it covers each step of the process, from gathering background information and other pre-test considerations to interpreting results and reporting conclusions, so the developing practitioner can find his or her own voice without sacrificing crucial detail. This improved evaluation of clients, in turn, will improve the way one’s practice is evaluated by supervisors, colleagues, or the courts.
Concise and practical, The Neuropsychology Toolkit is a trustworthy reference for neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, and rehabilitation specialists.
