What is included with this book?


In one volume, this authoritative reference presents a current, comprehensive overview of intellectual and cognitive assessment, with a focus on practical applications. Leaders in the field describe major theories of intelligence and provide the knowledge needed to use the latest measures of cognitive abilities with individuals of all ages, from toddlers to adults. Evidence-based approaches to test interpretation, and their relevance for intervention, are described. The book addresses critical issues in assessing particular populations-including culturally and linguistically diverse students, gifted students, and those with learning difficulties and disabilities-in today's educational settings. New to this edition: incorporates major research advances and legislative and policy changes covers recent test revisions plus additional tests: the NEPSY-II and the WNV expanded coverage of specific populations: chapters on autism spectrum disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, sensory and physical disabilities and traumatic brain injury, and intellectual disabilities chapters on neuropsychological approaches, assessment of executive functions, and multi-tiered service delivery models in schools.
