School Psychologists' Perceptions of Neuropsychological Assessment: A Pilot Study
Gelbar, Nicholas W.; Bray, Melissa
International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, v7 suppl 1 p137-144 2019
School psychologists are often given the task of reviewing the reports from clinical neuropsychologists to translate them into school-based supports and services. In order to explore the prevalence and utility of this, a pilot study was conducted using a nationwide sample recruited from the members of the National Association of School Psychologists. Fifty-nine school psychologists working in schools completed a survey of their perceptions of clinical neuropsychological reports. The majority of the sample indicated that they reviewed the results of at least one neuropsychological report in the past year. They indicated the reports were easy to interpret, but that neuropsychologists did not have a thorough understanding of the reality of schools. Future research should explore whether school psychologists require additional training to interpret and utilize neuropsychological assessments to develop school-based supports and services.
