"The book is a wonderful and much-needed addition to the corpus of scientifically based literature on learning and learning disabilities, especially reading disability."

A comprehensive reference on the theory and practice of evidence-based school neuropsychology

As new studies reveal disorders once thought behavioral or functional to be neurobiological or neurochemical in nature, clinical child neuropsychology has developed as an important discipline for understanding and treating a variety of child and adolescent disorders. With neuropsychological assessment more widely used in school settings than ever before, school psychologists require greater knowledge of both the discipline and its application in a school environment.

Bridging theory and practice, the Handbook of School Neuropsychology provides critical information on neuroanatomy, assessment, and practical, evidence-based interventions for a variety of childhood neuropsychological difficulties and disabilities. Featuring contributions from leading experts, this groundbreaking resource covers all aspects of school neuropsychology, from training and credentialing, assessment, and intervention to understanding and serving students with specific disorders or diseases.

This hands-on resource also features an appendix filled with useful tools, including a comprehensive neuropsychological questionnaire, sample neuropsychological evaluations, a list of associations, as well as sample neuropsychologically based IEPs.

The text presents the material in five sections, covering:
* Foundations of school neuropsychological practice
* Development, structure, and functioning of the brain
* Neuropsychological assessment for intervention
* Understanding and serving learners with diseases and disorders and from special populations
* Neuropsychological interventions in schools


The most comprehensive reference on the theory and practice of school neuropsychology, the Handbook of School Neuropsychology is an indispensable tool for school and child psychologists, special education professionals, and students in both fields.
Quickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to confidentlyadminister, score, and interpret behavioral assessment tests

Behavioral assessment tests analyze and assess a broad range ofbehavioral problems found among children and adolescents, includinghyperactivity, impulsivity, and ADHD. To use these tests properly,professionals need an authoritative source of advice and guidanceon how to administer, score, and interpret them. Cowritten byleading experts in the behavioral assessment field and the creatorsof the BASC (Behavioral Assessment System for Children), Essentialsof Behavioral Assessment is that source.

Like all the volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessmentseries, this book is designed to help busy mental healthprofessionals quickly acquire the knowledge and skills they need tomake optimal use of major psychological assessment instruments.Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlightingkey concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material,as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce yourgrasp of the information covered.

Essentials of Behavioral Assessment is the first book to providestate-of-the-art interpretive and administrative guidelines tousing the BASC, CRS-R (Conners' Rating Scales-Revised), and CBCL(Achenbach Child Behavior Checklists), the leading and most highlyrecognized behavioral assessment tests used in the field. Theauthors also offer expert assessment of the tests' merits andinclude classroom observations.

Increased public awareness of traumatic brain injuries has fueled a number of significant developments: on the one hand, more funding and more research related to these injuries and their resulting deficits; on the other, the possibility of higher stakes in personal injury suits—and more reasons for individuals to feign injury. Expanding both the conceptual and clinical knowledge base on the subject, the Second Edition of Detection of Malingering during Head Injury Litigation offers the latest detection tools and techniques for veteran and novice alike. As in its initial incarnation, this practical revision demonstrates how to combine clinical expertise, carefully-gathered data, and the use of actuarial models as well as common sense in making sound evaluations and reducing ambiguous results. And, the book navigates the reader through the many caveats that come with the job, beginning with the scenario that an individual may be malingering despite having an actual brain injury. Among the updated features: •Specific chapters on malingering on the Halstead-Reitan, Luria-Nebraska, and MMPI-2. •A framework for distinguishing genuine from factitious PTSD in head injury cases. •Detailed information regarding performance on the WMT, MSVT, and NV-MSVT by children with developmental disabilities. •Guidelines for explaining symptom validity testing to the trier of fact. •Entirely new chapters on mild TBI and on malingering of PTSD symptoms in the context of TBI litigation. Professional neuropsychologists and forensic psychologists will appreciate this new edition of Detection of Malingering during Head Injury Litigation as an invaluable source of refinements to their craft, and improvement as an expert witness.
An insightful look at the role of neuroscience and neuropsychology as it relates to Response to Intervention (RTI) in learning disability diagnosis, treatment, and policy reform

Neuropsychological Perspectives on Learning Disabilities in the Era of RTI is a revolutionary new volume presenting the latest research—in question-and-answer format—from leading scholars about the contributions of neuroscience and neuropsychology as it relates to Response to Intervention (RTI) in learning disability identification, diagnosis, and recommended interventions.

This collective work includes contributions from more than thirty neuroscientists, neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, and school psychologists with training in brain-behavior relationships, who explore the answers to questions including: How do you reconcile RTI as a means of diagnosis of learning disability with knowledge from the clinical neurosciences?? What do you think neuroscience has to offer laws and policies associated with learning disability determination? What do you think neuroscience has to offer the assessment and identification of learning disabilities? What role does neurocognitive science play in designing interventions in the context of RTI? What role does neuropsychology have to play in the diagnosis of learning disability? Featuring contributions from leaders in the field of neuropsychology and school psychology, and with a Foreword from Sally Shaywitz, Neuropsychological Perspectives on Learning Disabilities in the Era of RTI illuminates the contributions of neuro-science and neuropsychology to learning disability identification and current educational reform.
The motivation underlying our development of a "handbook" of creativity was different from what usually is described by editors of other such volumes. Our sense that a handbook was needed sprang not from a deluge of highly erudite studies calling out for organization, nor did it stem from a belief that the field had become so fully articulated that such a book was necessary to provide summation and reference. Instead, this handbook was conceptualized as an attempt to provide structure and organization for a field of study that, from our perspective, had come to be a large-scale example of a "degenerating" research program (see Brown, Chapter 1). The handbook grew out of a series of discussions that spanned several years. At the heart of most of our interactions was a profound unhappiness with the state of research on creativity. Our consensus was that the number of "good" works published on creativity each year was small and growing smaller. Further, we could not point to a journal, text, or professional organization that was providing leadership for the field in shaping a scientifically sound framework for the development of research programs in creativity. At the same time, we were casting about for a means of honoring a dear friend, E. Paul Torrance. Our decision was that we might best be able to honor Paul and influence research on creativity by developing a handbook designed to challenge traditional perspectives while offering research agendas based on contemporary psychological views.
