Summary This book examines the relationship between educational psychology and neuropsychology. It is based on the findings from two original research studies a national survey looking at educational psychologists views on neuropsychology; and interviews exploring the specialist role of educational psychologists in neuropsychological settings. The book considers key questions such as: Is neuropsychology applicable to educational psychologists day-to-day practice, or is it primarily a specialism? What is the role and unique contribution of educational psychologists working in child neuropsychological settings? Why are educational psychologists underrepresented amongst neuropsychologists and what does the training route entail? The book also considers why neuro-based concepts are so appealing to educators and the general public and explores the most prevalent misconceptions and neuromyths in education. Overall, the book aims to provide a unified account of the complex relationship between the disciplines through the voice of educational psychologists themselves and challenges some of the misconceptions about child neuropsychology as a specialism. Emilia Misheva is a practitioner psychologist with a specialist interest in neuropsychology. She completed her doctoral training as a child and educational psychologist at the UCL Institute of Education, UK
