Grandparenting Route Reopened

It is recognized that some psychologists may have been working in the capacity as Clinical Neuropsychologist at the time of the formation of the PSI Division of Neuropsychology (2009). These psychologists may have qualified via routes that would not meet current criteria. In order to enable these psychologists to enter onto the Specialist Register of the PSI Division of Neuropsychology, we are reopening the original Grandparenting route until December 31st, 2018.  Please refer to the relevant document in the downloads section below. 


Who we are: Aims and Objectives

The Division of Neuropsychology promotes evidence-based practice in clinical neuropsychological research and is particularly committed to developing policies and guidelines for the practice and advancement of Clinical Neuropsychology nationally.

Members of the Division of Neuropsychology have access to professional learning and development events tailored to the needs of Neuropsychologists working in an Irish context. Members of the Division have the opportunity to contribute to the agreement of the Division committee and PSI Council on National Policy level strategy groups, representing psychology as a profession.
