Overview

Quickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to understand and assess children and adolescents struggling with executive functions deficits

Essentials of Executive Functions Assessment is designed for professionals who want to learn how to administer, score, and interpret popular assessments of executive functions, including the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST), the Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Functions (BRIEF, BRIEF-SR), the Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System (D-KEFS), and the NEPSY-II, among others.

Like all the volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, this book is designed to help busy mental health professionals quickly acquire the knowledge and skills they need to make optimal use of major psychological assessment instruments. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

Executive functions experts George McCloskey and Lisa Perkins also provide general techniques that can be used to interpret aspects of executive functions using tests that are not specifically designed as measures of executive functions. The book's accompanying CD-ROM contains interview forms for parents and teachers, student observation forms, reference material on the BRIEF® and other rating scales, case-study reference material, and several sample psychoeducational assessment reports.

Buyers beware:  Please note: Once purchased, NOOK Books cannot be refunded. The book is excellent. The NOOK version of it is poorly delivered. The NOOK software even in my NOOK HD+ cannot display properly several sections of the book.

I have been waiting for this book since listening to George McCloskey presentation last July at the NASP Summer Conference. It is a great resource for increasing your knowledge base on Executive Functioning. Like all the essentials books it is written in a style that makes it more interesting to read as well as easy to refer back to for application.
