CPA’s neuropsychologists all meet the highest standards of education and training in neuropsychology, and most are board-certified through the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP).
Neuropsychological training standards, created by the professional bodies in neuropsychology and the Houston Conference, call for specific knowledge of clinical neuropsychology, neuroanatomy, and brain-behavior relationships; completion of an APA-approved internship in neuropsychology; and, completion of a specialty post-doctoral residency in clinical neuropsychology. CPA only employs neuropsychologists who meet these standards.
