The Differential Ability Scales-Second Edition (DAS-II r ) comes out of a vision to provide the psychologist with insight into how a child processes information to devise appropriate interventions and/or recommendations for the classroom and at home. Essentials of DAS-II r Assessment is the best source for practical, step-by-step instruction on accurately and effectively administering and scoring the DAS-II r instrument. This new book in the popular Essentials series provides practical information to clinical, counseling, school, and educational psychologists about administering the test and interpreting its results.
