Abstract

The purpose of this article is to educate the reader regarding the training requirements and scope of practice for rehabilitation psychology and neuropsychology. As discussed below, subspeciality training in pediatric rehabilitation psychology and pediatric neuropsychology is not yet formalized. While the clinical services of rehabilitation psychologists largely involve providing treatment, most clinical neuropsychologists primarily are involved in diagnostic assessment [19,20]. In rehabilitation settings, it is not unusual for psychologists to draw upon both rehabilitation psychology and neuropsychology expertise.
