CLI CS790 - Clinical Seminar in Assessment with Latino Population I

(Credits: 1)

This advanced course in assessment with the Latino Population is the first of two seminars. During this first seminar, we build upon the assessment courses dealing with cognition and intelligence to study the assessment of intelligence and cognition with the Latino population. Issues pertaining to cross-cultural assessment, choosing the right tests for the particular client to be assessed, as well as principles of cognitive, intelligence and neuropsychological assessment will be examined. In-class exercises, testing team assignments, team report writing, and in – class team presentations, will be the basis for assessing each student’s class performance.
