Dear Colleague,

One of the most challenging areas in clinical neuropsychology is the assessment and remediation of neurocognitive impairment in preschool and school-aged children.

For the next Butters-Kaplan West Coast Neuropsychology Conference: Advances in the Neuropsychological Assessment and Treatment of School-Aged Children with Cognitive Deficits, we are fortunate to offer an internationally renowned faculty who are pioneers in the development of new research methods for evaluating and helping children with neurocognitive syndromes. The speakers will present the latest findings from their research and will deliver information about new models and techniques of clinical assessment, new approaches for remediation of cognitive deficits in the developing child, and practical tools that clinicians and educators can use in their work with children.

This conference is intended for neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, school psychologists, speech therapists, learning specialists, educators, psychiatrists, neurologists, and other interested health care professionals.

As moderator of the conference, I will encourage questions and discussions between the audience and faculty.

I cordially invite you to join us for this exciting and informative program, and look forward to hosting you in San Diego, America’s finest city.

Sincerely,

Dean C. Delis, PhD, ABPP-CN
Course Director
