May be useful: Neuropsychology is a way of pinpointing parts of the brain that are functioning well or poorly. For example, it may show that visual information is much more useful to a child than is auditory informatoin. By mapping out strengths and weaknesses, the neuropsychologist may be able to help parents and teachers find better ways to help a child with autism to learn.
Dr. Ernest Bordini
Clinical Psychology 32 years experience
Most likely yes: Dsm-v will look at autism spectrum disorders with stricter criteria and specific and more detailed considerations of levels of functioning and impairment. Neuropsychological assessment for documentation of functioning and eligibilty for treatment and other services will likely be needed even more. These are complex children/adults with varying motor, language, cognitive and emotional functioning.
