Abstract:

This book offers an explanatory guide to the most widely used psychological tests in children. Although not meant to be comprehensive, it attempts to provide a meaningful overview and evaluation of numerous specific instruments as a useful tool for child health care professionals involved in the evaluation and treatment of children. This book is intended to aid the nonpsychologist in understanding psychological testing through: (1.) clarifying the needs of child health care providers with regard to psychological evaluations; (2.) explaining the concepts and assumptions of psychological testing in language which is clear and useful to those in other professions; (3.) discussing the findings, utility, and role of specific tests referred to on written reports or during verbal feedback; and (4.) detailing the relationship between psychological testing and medical and neurological evaluations. Finally, guidelines are provided for nonpsychologists in discussing with parents the results of psychological tests on children. -- from Preface.
