Passed by the National Academy of Neuropsychology Board of Directors on 10/30/01
"Be it resolved that the Executive Board of the National Academy of Neuropsychology, while meeting in open session and having been a sponsor of the Houston Conference, views the requirement for employment that a Neuropsychologist 'be trained in accordance with the principles of the Houston Conference' or similar statements to be premature. The Houston Conference Training Guidelines are properly considered as aspirational and should not be subject to rigid application."
