Neuropsychological and psychological evaluations in school settings are often rich in detail about a child's cognitive, academic and emotional functions, and come with specific recommendations to support the child's performance in school. However, there is often a gap between the assessment results and the implementation of the recommendations, since learning specialists and teachers frequently do not have the means to both interpret and implement the recommendations. This manual presents clear and specific guidelines for school counselors and teachers to decode and put into practice evaluation findings.

The book begins by describing various functional domains that are assessed in a neuropsychological evaluation, and then notes how to recognize behavior and learning styles impacted by difficulty in one of more of the domains. Furthermore, it outlines activities that could be used in the classroom or other environments to support a child's weaknesses, develop new skills, or appear to particular strengths. Finally, ready-to-use worksheets and activities are offered. This is an essential tool for school psychologists, special education teachers, and learning specialists and counselors.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a well written resource for the professional as it describes needed observations, assessment, and specific implementation strategies for effective use of the results of neuropsychological evaluations. While most of the material can guide clinicians, teachers and other specialists, many of the accommodation suggestions are described in terms that could be disseminated to parents who want to be helpful, thus augmenting the interventions by the professionals. It is a pleasure to recommend this book."

Nina W. Brown, Ed.D, LPC, NCC, FAGPA, Professor and Eminent Scholar of Counseling, Old Dominion University

"The authors have written a useful book that bridges the gap between neuropsychological assessment results and evidence-based interventions. The book is geared towards teachers and learning specialists who are often charged with implementing neuropsychology report recommendations."

Daniel C. Miller, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Woodcock Institute, Texas Woman's University.
