Previous CAP participants say:

"I have got a new tool that I can use in my daily work as educational consultant. It will enrich my consultative practice."

 

"It supports my favorite workflow - consultation and customerized rather than standardized assessment - and I am pleased, together with colleagues, to promote this way of working in our department."

 

"A course that gives you a framework for understanding and organizing all that you have previously learned about cognitive functions and learning."

 

"A really exciting course that gives a great overview"

 

"The CAP opens some new options for describing and intervening at some levels that have previously been less clear."

 

"I definitely think CAP could be a valuable supplement to the neuropsychological study. Thinking especially that it will be useful as a tool in the supervision proces. CAP contributes with a systematic approach in the information collection."
