This course focuses on preliminary skills and knowledge necessary to conduct psycho-educational assessment of school-aged children. Students will be trained in the administration, scoring and interpretation of common standardized tests for intellectual/cognitive functioning, academic achievement, and social/emotional/behavioural characteristics (e.g., WISC-IV, WIAT-III or WJ-III, BASC-2). A pre-requisite for CPC 612, students will begin to develop competency in the use of common test statistics and interpretation of standardized psychological and educational test results, become familiar with learning disabilities and DSM-IV criteria relevant to disorders usually diagnosed in childhood, and practice psychological and educational testing and assessment.
