About this title


The decision to have your child tested is not always an easy one. Neuropsychological evaluations cost time and money and can be intimidating, particularly if you are unfamiliar with the process. This book provides an in-depth overview of the entire process with the aim of educating you, the parent, on what you and your child will experience. Dr. Thaler taps into the latest research in pediatric neuropsychology and neuroscience to provide a digestible and straightforward explanation of the field. Vignettes are used to highlight individual experiences that bring life to the assessments. This book will answer your questions, whether you are considering having your child undergo a neuropsychological evaluation or you have just completed one and seek more information about the implications of findings.
