Featuring reproducible forms, sample scripts, and other clinical tools, this indispensable book shows how to select, administer, and interpret evidence-based intelligence tests for a variety of purposes. It provides quick-reference guidelines for comprehensively assessing an individual K-12 student and sharing the results through effective written reports and in-person meetings. Basic concepts in intellectual assessment are concisely explained and the role of testing in a response-to-intervention framework is addressed. Discussions of intellectual disability and specific learning disorder reference DSM-5 criteria. Instructors praise the book's suitability as a Cognitive Assessment course text. The large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying; the reproducible materials can also be downloaded and printed for repeated use.

This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series, edited by T. Chris Riley-Tillman.
