About the Author:

Robert L. Mapou received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Emory University, in Atlanta, GA and completed pre- and post-doctoral training in neuropsychology in Atlanta and in Boston, MA. He is board-certified in clinical neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP). Since 1993, he has been a clinical neuropsychologist in independent practice with William Stixrud, Ph.D. and Associates, LLC, Silver Spring, MD, where he specializes in the evaluation of adolescents and adults with learning disabilities and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Review:


"Adult Learning Disabilities and ADHD is a clinically rich reference book that is comprehensive in its coverage of issues related to the diagnosis and treatment of learning and attention disorders in adults. A particular strength is the extensive and practical discussion of assessment methods for adults and their illustration in case examples. Dr. Mapou also reviews the scant evidence based on adults with these disorders and links this research to the richer evidence-base on children. The material on accommodations for adults is a must-read for practicing clinicians faced with the common problem of evaluating adults requesting accommodations, with extensive guidance on how to conduct evaluations that will meet guidelines from different agencies and determining accommodations that are potentially implementable in a variety of settings." --Jack M. Fletcher, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished University Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Houston


"Thorough, honest and engaging, Adult Learning Disabilities and ADHD gives keen insight into the complexity of comprehensive neuropsychological assessment of adults with LD and ADHD; it is both respectful of research while acknowledging just how much we still don't know about the way these disorders manifest in people's lives. Reconciling clinical practice with the rigidity of current legal interpretations can be challenging - Mapou presents a holistic approach to resolving the seeming contradictions." --Jo Anne Simon, JD, Adjunct Associate Professor, Fordham University School of Law


"Dr. Robert Mapou provides readers with an up-to-date view of the complexities of LD/ADHD adult assessment in a clear and concise manner. His years of diagnostic experience are bolstered by relevant research findings that are woven throughout the text. Each chapter includes helpful summary points that underscore the key points discussed in the book and are further illustrated by a variety in-depth case studies written by the author. Mapou is able to speak directly to evaluators who write diagnostic reports as well as to the consumers who are seeking answers regarding their disability. He is an artisan who knows how to build reports that are diagnostically sound, relevant and practical."--Loring C. Brinckerhoff, PhD, Higher Education and Disability Consultant


"...impressive...Dr. Mapou proposes a provocative new definition of learning disability for adults and shows how empirical research findings drive assessment of learning disabilities and ADHD in adulthood. A clear distinction is drawn between the neuropsychological view of learning disabilities and ADHD as disorders and the legal view of them as disabilities. Dr. Mapou's substantial knowledge and experience also inform the unique and valuable discussions of documentation; accommodations; assistive technology; and interventions."--Mariellen Fischer, PhD, ABPP/CN, Co-author, ADHD in Adults: What the Science Says


"This extremely accessible book not only provides a cogent review of the literature, but also delves into the practical aspects of assessing adult ADHD and learning disabilities. For students and experienced clinicians alike, this book offers a valuable learning experience."--Doody's, a 5-star review!


"In summary, these two excellent volumes are extremely useful reading for neuropsychologists in research, practice, and training to use a authoritative sources of evidence-based practice in the evaluation and treatment of adults with learning disabilities or ADHD...These books provide an excellent foundation in understanding the evolution of these disorders and how to foster successful outcomes." --Journal of International Neuropsychological Society


"...I highly recommend this book to both students and practitioners who are called upon to assess adults for learning disabilities and ADHD. This text provides ample foundation and background not only for assessment of disability, but the need to consider malingering. Assessment is clearly linked to accommodations and intervention. Most importantly, assessment and recommendations are presented in the context of client feedback and follow-up. Each chapter ends with "key points" that may be particularly useful to students or those who do not routinely work with adults." --Cynthis A. Riccio, Texas A&M University, TX


"Robert Mapou has written a concise, practical, and insightful book about conducting research-informed assessments of adult learning disabilities and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD)...Overall it is an excellent handbook on the nuts and bolts of conducting a high standard of learning disability assessments..." --Psychology Press
