A key hallmark of psychological assessment is that it provides information that can be used to facilitate the identification and diagnostic process for a student. Equally important is how data collected by these assessments can be used in the first steps of planning interventions.
In the session, we will:
- Consider computerized tools to improve working memory and attention
- Review task-oriented methods used to assess the key components of attention
- Discuss how assessment data can be used to support student behavior and guide interventions
- Examine how recurrent assessment can be used to monitor student progress and evaluate student outcomes
- Explore rating scales (parent and teacher reports of attention problems) to obtain a detailed description of some challenges that children with ADHD may experience
