Neuropsychological Theory and Practice in Education

This course examines neuropsychology, the study of the brain and of nervous-system functions, in relation to adaptive behavior and learning, from a developmental viewpoint. The course looks at organismic versus specific localization theories about normal and dysfunctional conditions that affect moving, sensing, perceiving, assimilating, recalling, and expressing through diagnostic-prescriptive studies. Participants study learning abilities and disabilities from a neuropsychological perspective, allowing them to apply the analysis of learning styles to the implementation of individual instruction methods and education plans.
