Integrating Neuropsychological and Psychological Assessments is a resource for neuropsychologists, psychologists, teachers and parents who wish to address both the neurologically- and emotionally-based difficulties with which their children are presenting. In addition to a thorough description of neuropsychological and psychological assessment tools, this book also provides professionals with a unified approach to using the results from assessments to understand and integrate cognitive, behavioral, social and emotional functioning in school-age children. It posits that to educate and treat children who are struggling in school due to unique cognitive or emotional vulnerabilities, the whole child must be considered to decipher their needs and implement interventions. Cultivating a therapeutic relationship that integrates the emotional and relational functioning of the child enhances both their learning and ability to successfully navigate the world.

"Rarely does a clinical or academic publication have the potential for as wide a readership audience as this book does, and yet depth is not compromised. The authors take a broad approach for a broad audience and at every opportunity seemingly argue against discipline-specific assessments carried out in isolation. Indeed, they explain concepts with such skill and precision that there is learning at some level at every turn of the page. Even the most experienced practitioner will marvel at the multiple factors that are often overlooked in the unitary approaches of advanced specialism.Whether you are an expert or are just beginning to get drawn into neuropsychological realms, and if you have the opportunity to read only one book in the next few months, this is it." - James Tonks, University of Exeter
