Om boka

Psychoeducational Assessment and Report Writing

This textbook provides in-depth instruction for conducting psychoeducational assessments of children in grades K-12 and conveying results through detailed, well-written reports. It takes readers step by step through the assessment process - collecting data, writing reports, and communicating conclusions - for students with conditions spanning the range of IDEA classifications such as autism, learning disabilities, emotional disturbances, and conditions covered by Section 504. The book offers not only a broad understanding of assessment and communication skills, but also of the ethical, legal, cultural, and professional considerations that come with psychoeducational evaluation. And its sample reports model clear, well-organized results accessible to parents and caregivers as well as teachers and colleagues.

Key areas of coverage include:
* Assessment basics: the testing environment and protocols, interviewing, and observation.
* Report writing section by section, from reason for referral to summary and recommendations.
* Guidelines for oral reporting, with case examples.
* Special issues in psychoeducational assessment and report writing.
* Sample psychoeducational reports using this framework.

"This volume is an outstanding resource for graduate students learning about psychoeducational assessment and report writing for students in grades K to 12, as well as practitioners seeking to update and refine their skills. The text is remarkable in its coverage of a range of disabilities (e.g., intellectual disability, learning disability, autism, emotional disturbance, and other health impairments including ADHD) and methods of data collection (e.g., clinical interview, test observation, classroom observation, developmental history, direct testing, and rating scales). The book is both scholarly and exceptionally practical. Readers will be particularly pleased with the inclusion of numerous samples of reports for children with varying disabilities." (Thomas J. Power, PhD, ABPP, Chief Psychologist, Professor of School Psychology in Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Education, The Children Hospital of Philadelphia, Perelman School of Medicine at University of Pennsylvania) "This book is a practical guide for learning the procedures of psychoeducational assessment, and will serve as a useful reference for practitioners and supervising psychologists.
