Dr. Michael Chafetz is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist working in independent practice in New Orleans, LA, USA.  His research program has involved validity assessment in low functioning children and adults being assessed for Social Security Disability, state rehabilitation, and child protection. He has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles on these topics, challenging assumptions concerning individuals with intellectual disability. In 2015, his book on Intellectual Disability in the forensic arena was published by Oxford University Press. He has consulted for a United States Senator on Social Security policy concerning validity assessment, testified at hearings at the Institute of Medicine, and consulted for the Office of the Inspector General on these issues. He has presented invited addresses at the American Psychological Association, National Academy of Neuropsychology, American Academy of Clinical Psychology, several state psychological associations, the Association of Administrative Law Judges, the Federal Administrative Law Judge Conference, and various bar associations. The work being presented today derived from his research, and the research of various colleagues in the field.  Dr. Chafetz is delighted to be interacting with Swedish colleagues and is appreciative of being invited.
