If you are an even semi-frequent reader of this blog, then you are well aware that I’ve been working on a super-secret project for about the past seven months.
Well, my partner in crime, Dr. Marc Testa, and I finally launched our site this past Wednesday. Both the project and site are called Neuropsych Now, and our goal was to develop a centralized resource of information for neuropsychology students and clinicians. More importantly, we’re doing our very best to make sure that the information, links, etc. that we curate are
- Approximating, equaling, or better-than accepted academic and scientific standards
- Free or as inexpensive as possible
We felt that our field was lacking something like this. We spent a good amount of our development time doing research around the web and by talking to our peers, and identified some general and specific needs we thought we could reasonably meet. Then, we decided to fill those needs.
Since clinicians and students are not always just sitting in an office evaluating patients, we also decided that it was important to make these resources as accessible as possible. This point went to the design of the site – we needed to make sure that our visitors could access the site and content on any device. We quickly discovered responsive web design, and never looked back.
If you’d like to learn more about the site, please go check it out. We have had a good time getting our initial content out, and can’t wait to move forward – there’s a LOT more to come.
