Neuropsychological, Physiological, and Biochemical Assessment

  • Amos Zeichner
Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series (NSSB)


The physical, psychoeducational, and behavioral development of the child is a prime concern in our society. Over the years, parents, teachers, administrators, and members of the helping professions have been called on to evaluate whether the child who in their care was evincing the expected and desirable development pattern. This demand for assessment has increased commensurately with the burgeoning availability of educational challenges and higher societal expectation placed on the child. As a result, the initial nonsystematic, anecdotal, and impressionistic methods of child evaluation are continuously being replaced by sophisticated, multidisciplinary, and standardized methods of assessment.
