Workshop Level: Intermediate (Given that psychological test materials will be shown and discussed, attendees must be appropriately qualified assessment professionals.)
Program Description: For this presentation, Dr. Rebecca Resnik will connect research on the neuropsychology of language-based learning disabilities to the real world of assessment. This presentation is focused on helping psychologists apply neuroscience to create evidence-based assessment batteries and interpret patterns of test behavior. Through anonymized case material, attendees will do “deep dives” into differential diagnosis, prognosis and evidence-based interventions. This presentation will offer attendees opportunities for hands-on work with case material and group discussion. Dr. Resnik will also focus on thorny “real world” testing issues, such as common ethical quandaries and writing for education professionals.
- Attendees will be able to describe the neuropsychology of dyslexia, dysgraphia and other language-based learning disabilities
- Attendees will apply these research findings to case material to practice developing test batteries
- Attendees will apply these research findings to examining test data to inform differential diagnosis
- Attendees will apply research findings to practice selecting intervention ‘action plans’ based upon case data
- Attendees will be able to describe composing recommendations that are useful to education professionals
- Attendees will apply ethical principals to common ethics questions related to assessment
