The American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology Foundation (AACNF) is a nonprofit, charitable organization (501c3) established in 2008 by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology. The mission of the Foundation is to support research to evaluate and document outcomes of neuropsychological services, and to increase access to neuropsychological services among the public by increasing awareness of those services and their outcomes.
The AACNF considers the study of outcomes imperative in maintaining and improving access to neuropsychological services for individuals with neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions. In an era marked by escalating scrutiny in determinations regarding the necessity for healthcare services, priority is being given to evidence-based practices. The AACNF seeks to increase the availability of empirical data addressing the value of neuropsychological services. Toward this end, we sponsor an Outcome Studies Grant Program.
The Outcome Studies Grant Program awards grants for studies evaluating outcomes of clinical neuropsychological services. Grant applications are specifically invited for studies assessing the utility and cost effectiveness of neuropsychological evaluations. Initial target areas include attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, dementia, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and epilepsy.
Thank you for your interest in and support of AACNF!
