NLPA Neuropsychology


The purpose of this special interest group (SIG) is to provide a forum for members to discuss issues that affect Latinxs within the field of neuropsychology. This SIG promotes the use of neuropsychological assessments that have demonstrated psychometric reliability and validity for use with Latinx populations. It is sensitive to cultural differences that are typically associated with this population group with respect to these assessments. It promotes increasing cultural competence in the assessment of Latinxs by addressing cultural and linguistic differences that impact assessment. Through collaborative efforts with other members, this SIG highlights and disseminates relevant information, including current research, normative data, and recently published assessments pertinent to Latinxs. This SIG serves as a reference point for individuals seeking information regarding the application of neuropsychology. Specifically, it provides information regarding clinical practice, training programs, and outreach services.
