Also, assessments utilized to better understand specific neurocognitive, developmental, and functional deficits will be discussed to provide practitioners with greater understanding of tools available to aid in determining deficits. Finally, interventions based upon common neurocognitive, developmental, and functional deficits will be discussed to enable practitioners locate community resources to better serve the needs of the child and family.
