About the Authors
Nuanced yet accessible, this volume provides a comprehensive overview of numerous topics pertaining to the clinical assessment of intelligence of school-aged youth. Each chapter contains the latest research findings from the field and, throughout the text, there is a rigorous commitment to advancing empirically supported practice in general and evidence-based assessment in particular. In that way, this volume distinguishes itself from other available resources. Put simply, this is the book I have been waiting for!
