What is Clinical Neuropsychology?
Clinical Neuropsychology is a specialty field within clinical psychology, dedicated to understanding the relationships between brain and behavior, particularly as these relationships can be applied to the diagnosis of brain disorder, assessment of cognitive and behavioral functioning, and the design of effective treatment.
How can I find a Clinical Neuropsychologist?
Clinical neuropsychologists practice in a wide range of settings including hospitals, outpatient clinics, private practice offices, schools, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and governmental agencies. Referral is usually requested by another physician or health care provider; teachers may request an evaluation for a student who may be having difficulty with learning in the school setting; insurance companies may refer in order to assess whether or not a person is disabled from working, or whether a person’s claimed deficits are a direct result of some kind of accident.
