Book note: Hispanic neuropsychological assessment: Dr. Marcel Ponton

I had the opportunity to chat (via phone) with Dr. Marcel Ponton today re: the BAT III and interpretation of test scores in the context of Atkins MR/ID cases.  I found the discussion stimulating and at a very professional level re: intellectual assessment of individuals with Hispanic backgrounds.  Although I have not read his book, nor do I have a copy, my positive impressions were such that I would like readers of the IDCP blog to be aware of his book.  His book "The Hispanic Patient and the Neuropsychological Asessment" might be worth a look by examiners engaged in psychological assessment of individuals with Hispanic backgrounds.
