Theory, research, and practice are integrated throughout. Key features of this exciting new book include: Interdisciplinary Perspective - Many chapters are written by authors from different disciplines, all of whom have multicultural expertise. The last chapter provides summarizing commentaries written by leaders in different disciplines. Scientist-Practitioner Focus - Evidence-based interventions for culturally and linguistically diverse students are provided for major competency areas such as consultation, counseling, and special programs (e.g., bilingual and multicultural education). Assessment Focus - Multicultural and bilingual assessment issues are discussed in the chapters covering language, cognitive, personality, behavioral, neuropsychological, vocational, acculturational, and academic assessment. Special Populations Focus - The needs of special populations such as culturally different parents, gifted and talented children, preschool children, migrant families, and children with low and high incidence learning disabilities are discussed in section VI. This book is appropriate for graduate courses and seminars dealing with multicultural school psychology.

If you are a doctoral or non-doctoral student about to begin your internship in school psychology, you may have several questions about the process and what it will involve, and you may even be facing some anxiety about it. If you are a site or university supervisor preparing for the beginning of the internship year, you may be looking for ways to improve the internship experience for your students or for yourself and your fellow supervisors. Newman has used his many years of experience working with interns and field supervisors to create this guide to the school psychology internship process to address these common concerns. He provides a comprehensive overview of the school psychology internship process from start to finish, describing actions that can be taken to promote a high quality, dynamic internship experience. Emphasis is placed on the idea that the internship year is a dynamic and formative experience, not a static event, and that interns and supervisors both must be active planners, coordinators, and shapers of the experience. Each part of the book explores a different phase of the internship, from the first days through job applications and interviews. Helpful and pragmatic tools are included throughout, such as evaluation tools, best practice guidelines, and sample forms. Online resources are also available to complement the book and include reproducible material from the book, videos students can use to practice their interviewing skills, and links to helpful resources.

The history of American education is replete with educational reform, and to a lesser extent, educational dissent. Consider the present: you have various forms of privatization, school choice, the 'No Child Left Behind' act, home schooling, 'value-added' accountability, alternative teacher preparation programs, on-line instruction, etc. This range of activity is not exceptional. For instance, consider the past: progressive education, open education, the junior high school, the middle school, Life Adjustment education, career education, vocational education, the comprehensive high school, school-to-work, year-round schooling, behavioral objectives, proficiency exams (high-stakes testing), whole language, learning packages and self-paced instruction, modular scheduling, site-based management, all presented as the way to reform American schools, at least in part. Then you have the reformers themselves, such as John Dewey, George Counts, Herbert Kohl, John Holt, Charles Silberman, Admiral Hyman Rickover, James Bryant Conant, all the way back to Horace Mann himself. Dissenters, and dissenting movements, while not as numerous and certainly not as well known in educational circles, count the various faith-based schools and individuals such as Archbishop Hughes of New York.Clearly, this is an area rich in ideas, rife with controversy, and vital in its outcome for individuals and the nation as a whole. And yet, strangely enough, there exists no major encyclopedia bringing the varied strands together in one place as a ready reference for scholars, teachers, school administrators, and students studying to enter the educational profession. This two-volume work is intended to be that authoritative resource. Key themes and topics include: " biographies of reformers and dissenters " theoretical and ideological perspectives " key programs and legislation " judicial verdicts impacting educational change in America " the politics and processes of educational reform and policy making " dissent and resistance to reform " technology's impact on educational reform. A Reader's Guide in the front matter groups entries around such themes to help readers find related entries more easily.

The field of educational psychology draws from a variety of diverse disciplines including human development across the life span, measurement and statistics, learning and motivation, and teaching. And within these different disciplines, many other fields are featured including psychology, anthropology, education, sociology, public health, school psychology, counseling, history, and philosophy. In fact, when taught at the college or university level, educational psychology is an ambitious course that undertakes the presentation of many different topics all tied together by the theme of how the individual can best function in an "educational" setting, loosely defined as anything from pre-school through adult education. Educational psychology can be defined as the application of what we know about learning and motivation, development, and measurement and statistics to educational settings (both school- and community-based).

"The book is a wonderful and much-needed addition to the corpus of scientifically based literature on learning and learning disabilities, especially reading disability." --Sally E. Shaywitz, MD Co-Director, Yale Center for the Study of Learning and Attention and author of Overcoming Dyslexia A comprehensive reference on the theory and practice of evidence-based school neuropsychology As new studies reveal disorders once thought behavioral or functional to be neurobiological or neurochemical in nature, clinical child neuropsychology has developed as an important discipline for understanding and treating a variety of child and adolescent disorders. With neuropsychological assessment more widely used in school settings than ever before, school psychologists require greater knowledge of both the discipline and its application in a school environment. Bridging theory and practice, the Handbook of School Neuropsychology provides critical information on neuroanatomy, assessment, and practical, evidence-based interventions for a variety of childhood neuropsychological difficulties and disabilities. Featuring contributions from leading experts, this groundbreaking resource covers all aspects of school neuropsychology, from training and credentialing, assessment, and intervention to understanding and serving students with specific disorders or diseases. This hands-on resource also features an appendix filled with useful tools, including a comprehensive neuropsychological questionnaire, sample neuropsychological evaluations, a list of associations, as well as sample neuropsychologically based IEPs. The text presents the material in five sections, covering: * Foundations of school neuropsychological practice * Development, structure, and functioning of the brain * Neuropsychological assessment for intervention * Understanding and serving learners with diseases and disorders and from special populations * Neuropsychological interventions in schools The most comprehensive reference on the theory and practice of school neuropsychology, the Handbook of School Neuropsychology is an indispensable tool for school and child psychologists, special education professionals, and students in both fields.
