1162d – Webinar – Neuropsychological Evaluations: What Parents Need to Know
This pre-recorded webinar on Children’s Mental Health may meet requirements for child foster care licensing so please have your licensing worker review and confirm.
(April 2017) Who, what, where, when, why and how? This webinar will address topics ranging from why a child/teen might have a neuropsychological evaluation, what to expect from the evaluation, and what to do with results following an evaluation. Parents and providers will also learn what makes a neuropsychological evaluation different from other assessments (e.g., diagnostic assessment). Learn how this level of evaluation deepens understanding of a child’s unique needs in a number of areas and helps tailor recommendations for them to experience more success in all environments.
