Educational Neuropsychology

  • Rebecca Ashton


Most children are in education for a large proportion of their waking life, whether in school, nursery, college or some other educational setting. Schools can make a difference to children’s academic outcomes, as well as their well-being (Sellstrom and Bremberg, 2006), and what happens at school can therefore influence the child’s development following a brain injury.
