Unlike other books on child testing, this one establishes a conceptual framework for psychological evaluation of children. Instead of focusing on the assessment of particular conditions, it deals with what is important to find out about all children, normal and disturbed, and sets forth a standardized means of analysis, the Basic Psychological Examination. Covers practical aspects of the examination, including the interview group, the examination setting, preparing the child, formulating reports and recommendations, and conferring with parents. Comparable in scope and comprehensiveness to a physician's medical exam, the Basic Psychological Examination enables the practitioner to identify virtually anything out of order in a child's development. Practical and boldly original, the text commends itself to educators, researchers and clinicians alike.
