Our research and training compare quite favorably among similar institutions nationwide. Yet our department is much more than an academic institution, removed from the front lines. Indeed, Ball State as a whole is well-known for its insistence that students receive real-world, experiential learning opportunities and its commitment to share its expertise with the community at large in order to improve institutions and enhance quality of life.
That’s what our Neuropsychology Laboratory and Psychoeducational Diagnostic Intervention Clinic are all about. Their purpose is to serve educational psychology students, the overall discipline of educational psychology, and the needs of individuals across central Indiana.
The Neuropsychology Laboratory is a research and teaching facility that also provides an important outreach to the larger community. The lab assesses and treats neurological disorders and conducts research on brain mechanisms related to mental functioning. The facility supports neuropsychology course work and serves patients referred by medical practitioners, public schools, and other agencies.
The Psychoeducational Diagnostic Intervention Clinic allows faculty and students the opportunity to offer low-cost psychological and educational assessments to individuals of all ages. It’s a community service but also provides training for MA, EdS, and PhD students in school psychology, who work under the supervision of state-certified or -licensed psychologists.
