Advanced Test Supervision

Spring 2019

Taught By: Richelle Allen

Section: A

CRN: 5501

Credits: 0 TO 2

This is for students who wish to gain practice in neuropsychological and psycho-diagnostic testing with adults. Typical referrals will be for diagnostic testing with question of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Intellectual/Developmental and Learning Disabilities, Memory and other Cognitive Impairment, as well as common psychiatric differentials for the above. Clients include adults, often students of The New School or clients through the NSPRP, who are struggling academically, occupationally, and/or socially and are wishing to gain insight into their difficulties and recommendations. Students will have the opportunity to complete at least two assessments during the semester under the supervision of Dr. Allen. Supervision will follow students through the process of comprehensive assessment: gaining an informed understanding of the referral question, collection of background information, test selection, administration, scoring, data analysis and interpretation, report writing, case presentation, and therapeutic feedback. Prerequisite: Diagnostic testing course or prior assessment experience. This class will meet on Wednesdays from 3:00pm until 4:00pm. The group will be split and an additional meeting time will be added according to student availability, if needed.
