      Presented by

      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.

      Dr. Donders has been the Chief Psychologist at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI since 1992. He is board-certified in Clinical Neuropsychology, Pediatric Clinical Neuropsychology, and Rehabilitation Psychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology. He is also a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and of the National Academy of Neuropsychology. In addition to being an active clinical practitioner, he has served on multiple editorial and executive boards, has authored or co-authored more than 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals, and has edited or co-edited six textbooks.
