Abstract: Neuropsychological reports are often long on detail and short on novel findings or pragmatic and feasible suggestions. This webinar will describe the “inverted pyramid” model of report writing that focuses on the main conclusions, supported by those findings that are truly relevant. In addition, examples will be provided about application in various settings, including rehabilitation, forensics, and pediatrics. Finally, the presentation will review alternative communication methods to supplement or replace the traditional written report.

He is board-certified in Clinical Neuropsychology, Pediatric Clinical Neuropsychology, and Rehabilitation Psychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology.
