Intelligent Testing with the WISC V Book Excerpt:

Interpret the WISC–V to help diagnose learning disabilities and to translate profiles of test scores to educational action The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children—Fifth Edition (WISC–V) is a valuable tool for assessing children and adolescents with learning disorders—and Intelligent Testing with the WISC–V offers the comprehensive guidance you need to administer, score, and interpret WISC–V profiles for informing diagnoses and making meaningful educational recommendations. This essential resource provides you with cutting-edge expertise on how to interpret the WISC–V, which has an expanded test structure, additional subtests, and an array of new composites. Intelligent Testing offers valuable advice from experienced professionals with regard to clinically applying the WISC–V in an effort to understand a child's strengths and weaknesses—and to create a targeted, appropriate intervention plan. Ultimately, this book equips you with the information you need to identify the best theory-based methods for interpreting each child's profile of test scores within the context of his or her background and behaviors. Intelligent Testing provides a strong theoretical basis for interpreting the WISC–V from several vantage points, such as neuropsychological processing theory and the Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) model, yet it permits you to interpret children's profiles using simple, straightforward steps. The most frequently used IQ test in the world, the WISC–V (like previous versions of the WISC) plays an integral role in evaluating children for learning and intellectual disabilities, developmental and language delays, and gifted and talented classifications. As such, understanding how to use the latest version of WISC is extremely important when assessing children and adolescents ages 6 to 16 years. Explore all aspects of both the conventional WISC–V and WISC–V Digital Read objective, independent test reviews of the WISC–V from independent, highly-respected expert sources Review 17 clinical case reports that spotlight experiences of children and adolescents referred to psychologists for diverse reasons such as reading problems, specific learning disabilities, ADHD, intellectual giftedness, and autistic spectrum disorders Learn how a broad-based, multi-faceted approach to interpretation that calls upon several scientific concepts from the fields of cognitive neuroscience, clinical and school neuropsychology, neuropsychological processing, and the CHC model, can benefit children by providing meaningful recommendations to parents, teachers, and often to the children and adolescents themselves Use the results of WISC–V as a helping agent to assist in creating the best intervention plan, rather than allowing test results to dictate placement or labeling Intelligent Testing with the WISC–V is an indispensable resource for professionals who work with the WISC–V, including school psychologists, clinical psychologists, educational diagnosticians, and more.

Conducting Psychological Assessment Book Excerpt:

Praise for CONDUCTING PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT "This new addition of Wright's useful text is a tour de force. No one else writes more clearly, practically, and helpfully than Wright about psychological assessment—especially about the complex process of case conceptualization. This book should be required reading in every graduate course on psychological assessment." —Stephen E. Finn, PhD, Founder, Center for Therapeutic Assessment "A. Jordan Wright's Conducting Psychological Assessment is a comprehensive step-by-step guide to every aspect of psychological testing and assessment. Blending clinical wisdom with rigorous empirical evidence, the author guides readers though every phase of the assessment process, from selecting appropriate measures and collecting test data through writing assessment reports and providing feedback to clients. Experienced clinicians, early career psychologists, and students will all benefit from this important book; it should be on every clinician's bookshelf." —Robert F. Bornstein, PhD, Derner School of Psychology, Adelphi University "Conducting Psychological Assessment (2nd ed) provides a clear, concise, practical guide to essential aspects of clinical assessment. Dr. Wright presents scholarly research, draws on extensive clinical experience, and illustrates his guidelines with rich case examples. Much of this information is typically not included in other assessment books, such as how to select tests, strategies to integrate contradictory data, and how to work with clients who disagree with assessment results. Accordingly, I recommend this to all health professionals involved with clinical assessment." —Gary Groth-Marnat, PhD, ABPP, ABAP

Assessing Dyslexia Book Excerpt:

In today’s schools, teachers must screen and monitor for academic difficulties and are expected to use assessments to guide their instruction. Understanding the assessment of students with dyslexia gives teachers the knowledge to identify which skills need remediation, and the students’ strengths that can help them overcome their challenges. Assessing Dyslexia provides teachers with answers to questions they often have about assessment and is applicable not only to students with dyslexia but to all who struggle with reading. Written in accessible terms throughout, this book offers information on understanding and interpreting psychoeducational reports and approaches on how to better communicate with parents and students regarding this process. By demonstrating how to use testing to guide their teaching, this book describes the why, how and what of assessment and promotes the self-sufficiency of teachers by providing them with a clear rationale for why particular instructional strategies should be used. With encouragement for teachers to reflect on assessment critically and resources to expand their skill knowledge, this book provides a clear path to enhancing teachers’ practice and improving their pupils’ attainment. Assessing Dyslexia serves as a suitable reading for all teachers and represents a move from the "wait to fail" model to a test to teach approach, addressing the questions and anxieties of today’s teachers.
