Overview

Provides step-by-step guidelines for organizing a processing assessment, selecting appropriate instruments, interpreting results, and identifying processing deficits

Understanding how the brain processes information is vital to identifying a child's strengths and weaknesses with regard to learning and formulating appropriate interventions for specific learning difficulties. Essentials of Processing Assessment, the latest addition to the popular Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, provides critical information about this important aspect of cognitive functioning. This handy resource provides students and practitioners with the tools they need to accurately and efficiently assess an individual's ability to process information.

As part of the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, this book provides information mental health professionals need to practice knowledgeably, efficiently, and ethically in today's behavioral healthcare environment. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as "Test Yourself" questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

The author first presents a model of cognitive processing and learning accompanied by a snapshot of interventions that address various processing deficits, especially those linked to problems with reading, writing, and arithmetic. Next, he outlines a cross-battery approach to selecting appropriate assessment measures and reviews key instruments, such as the WISC(r)-IV, KABC-II, Stanford-Binet 5, WJ III(r), CAS, NEPSY(r), and others. Finally, he provides indispensable guidelines on how to organize a processing assessment and how to interpret results. The book includes a detailed chart categorizing the scales and subtests used in processing assessments and a valuable worksheet for analyzing results.

Closely following IDEA Reauthorization requirements, Essentials of Processing Assessment offers the best one-stop source of information for students and practitioners to identify processing strengths and weaknesses, and plan appropriate interventions.
