About the Authors
  • Dynamic assessment embeds interaction within the framework of a test-intervene-retest approach to psychoeducational assessment. This book offers an introduction to diagnostic assessors in psychology, education, and speech/language pathology to the basic ideas, principles, and practices of dynamic assessment. Most importantly, the book presents an array of specific procedures developed and used by the authors that can be applied to clients of all ages in both clinical and educational settings. The authors discuss their approach to report-writing, with a number of examples to demonstrate how they incorporate dynamic assessment into a comprehensive approach to assessment. The text concludes with a discussion of issues and questions that need to be considered and addressed. Two appendixes include descriptions of additional tests used by the authors that are adapted for dynamic assessment, as well as information about dynamic assessment procedures developed by others and sources for additional information about this approach.

    • Provides theoretical overview and basic principles of the 'dynamic' approach to psychological assessment
    • Describes a model of mental functioning as a theoretical foundation for the procedures described in the book
    • Provides full instructions of specific procedures appropriate for use with clients of all ages

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a dynamic application of dynamic assessment. This is a must-read for clinicians and educators, scholars and practitioners."
    Kenneth Dodge, Duke University, Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology

    "Haywood and Lidz, Dynamic Assessment in Practice: Clinical and Educational Applications, is one of the best published works on DA..... The authors present a comprehensive, eclectic, and transactional approach that deals with the complexities and richness of human beings' cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning.... A strong impression that emerges across the book is that the authors, with their long and rich experience in research and practice, are imbued with a mission to mediate the necessity, importance, and utility of using DA.... This book is a must-have for any psychologist or educator who is interested in basic understanding of human functioning and is not limited to those dealing with assessment alone." PsycCritiques
