Workshop Overview

When it comes to ADHD, there is a lot of misunderstanding in the community. Andrew will try and simplify ADHD and discuss assessment, treatment and diagnosing the condition.

When it comes to IQ and Educational assessments (often referred to as psychometric assessments) there is a lot of misunderstanding about how these tools can be used and what information can be obtained from them.

In this seminar, Andrew will try to answer some commonly asked questions about these tests and discuss how these assessment tools can be useful for both parents and teachers when investigating issues such as ADHD, Giftedness, Learning Difficulties, Nonverbal Learning Difficulties and other conditions.

Andrew will discuss in detail what is involved in a psychometric assessment, what information should be gathered from them and how they should be interpreted by parents, teachers, school counselors and other allied health professional.
