In-depth knowledge of neurodevelopment and its multiple implications in a comprehensive program meant to propel you to the next professional level”

master neuropsicologia educacion

Neuropsychology work in education is complex, as it covers a broad spectrum of intervention that requires professionals possess specific training in the various branches of brain development. This discipline, deeply linked to neurology and the physiological study of the brain, is affected by the changes that the evolution of knowledge in this scientific branch achieves. For professionals, this means an intense challenge of continuous updating that allows them to be at the forefront in terms of approach, intervention and monitoring of the cases that may arise in their practice.

Throughout this program, the student will review all the current approaches to the work practiced by neuropsychologists with regard to the different challenges posed by their profession.

The functioning of memory, language, the relationship between laterality and cognitive development, sensoriality and many other aspects, will be the topics of work and study that the student will be able to integrate in their training. A high-level step that will become a process of improvement, not only on a professional level, but also on a personal level.

This challenge is one of TECH's social commitments: to help highly qualified professionals to specialize and develop their personal, social and work skills during the course of their training.

Not only does it lead through the theoretical knowledge offered, but it also shows another way of studying and learning, more organic, simple and efficient. We will work to keep you motivated and to develop in you a passion for learning. We will encourage you to think and develop critical thinking.

A program created for professionals who aspire to excellence that will allow you to acquire new skills and strategies in a smooth and effective way”

A deep and comprehensive dive into strategies and approaches in Neuropsychology and Education”

Our teaching staff is made up of working professionals. That way we ensure our students receive the up-to-date training we aim to provide. A multidisciplinary team of trained and experienced specialists in different environments, who will develop the theoretical knowledge efficiently, but, above all, will put at the service of the program the practical knowledge derived from their own experience: one of the differential qualities of this Professional Master’s Degree.

This mastery of the subject is complemented by the effectiveness of the methodology used in the design of this program. Developed by a multidisciplinary team of E-Learning experts, it integrates the latest advances in educational technology. In this way, you will be able to study with a range of comfortable and versatile multimedia tools that will give you the operability you need in your training.

The design of this program is based on Problem-Based Learning: an approach that conceives learning as a highly practical process. To achieve this remotely, telepractice will be used: with the help of an innovative system of interactive videos, and learning from an expert you will be able to acquire the knowledge as if you were facing the case you are learning at that moment. A concept that will make it possible to integrate and fix learning in a more realistic and permanent way.
