Major Changes[edit]

In response to the crtiticism of the article not reflecting an international perspective, I seperated the information relating directly to the US and the information related to clinical neuropsychology in general. I haven't yet made any changes to these sections, but I will.

I added a section relating to the educational requirements of becoming a clinical neuropsychologist in Australia. More countries to come. If you know this information for other countries, please feel free to add this and please add refernces to back up the information. MitchMcM (talk) 10:41, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Structural changes[edit]

All of the information was in a large chunk, so I moved it under a subheading so that a lede can be written. The information still needs to be divided up under sub-headings though.

I made a fair few minor edits and rewrote some sentences that were a bit awkwardly worded. I also removed some information about Ed.D. being an appropraite qaulification for a clinical neuropsychologist. To my knowledge thats not the case, but I may be wrong, if so please replace this in the appropraite country's section with a reference.

University Lists Added for US/Canada[edit]

Still very much a page "under-construction/revision". Information additions, revisions and deletions still to come. Other editors welcome!!

Assessment Section[edit]

I rewrote the whole unreferenced Assessment section with referenced material. I cut and pasted the previous information, so I'll replace any of the important info that I find references for. There is definitely more that can be added to all of the new sections, especially the section on selection of tests. When I get time I'll also add sections on employment setting and rehabilitaion too.

In the meantime I welcome any advice/comments/edits from other users- sometimes it feels like I'm the only one on this page.... The page could benefit from a greater variety of references. I removed the unreferenced tag as the page is now quite well referenced, if you add any information please reference it or it will be removed, as it took me several months to remedy the problem of unreferenced material.
