Evaluation and Treatment of Neuropsychologically Compromised Children: Understanding Clinical Applications Post Luria and
Reitan defines what executive functions are, discusses differences in executive functioning between normative children and
those with special education needs, identifies how best to perform neuropsychological assessments of executive function using
both qualitative and quantitative measures, and presents the best treatment interventions for improvement. The book makes
special note of the contributions of A.R. Luria, from Russia, and Ralph M. Reitan, from the US as the "fathers" of modern
neuropsychology to help readers understand current advances in theory and clinical applications relating to executive function.
