About Board Certification

Believe it or not, most states allow licensed psychologists to call themselves neuropsychologists without showing they have any special training on how to care for people who have neurological or neurodevelopmental disorders. Clinicians who are board-certified in clinical neuropsychology have proven, through a rigorous evaluation, that they are fully competent. That certification is provided through the largest board certification group in psychology, the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP), and its specialty board, the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology (ABCN). The goal of ABPP is to protect the public by examining and certifying psychologists who demonstrate competence in approved specialty areas.
