Assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorders
SAM GOLDSTEIN & JACK A. NAGLIERI (2009)


Significant progress has been made in assessing children with autism spectrum disorders, but the field has lacked a single, comprehensive resource that assembles current best practices within a unified assessment framework. This authoritative book demonstrates how to craft a complete, scientifically grounded, and clinically useful portrait of a child's strengths and difficulties in social behavior, language, and communication, intellectual functioning, motor skills, and other key areas of impairment and comorbidity. Leading experts illustrate ways in which school and clinical practitioners can integrate data from a variety of sources to improve the accuracy of diagnosis and inform the development of individualized interventions.




The Assessment of Cognitive Processes: The PASS Theory of Intelligence
SAM GOLDTEIN, DANA PRINCIOTTA, & JACK A. NAGLIERI & ERIC B. PICKERING (2010) 

Numerous functions, cognitive skills, and behaviors are associated with intelligence, yet decades of research has yielded little consensus on its definition. Emerging from often conflicting studies is the provocative idea that intelligence evolved as an adaptation humans needed to keep up with – and survive in – challenging new environments.
The Handbook of Intelligence addresses a broad range of issues relating to our cognitive and linguistic past. It is the first full-length volume to place intelligence in an evolutionary/cultural framework, tracing the development of the human mind, exploring differences between humans and other primates, and addressing human thinking and reasoning about its own intelligence and its uses. The works of pioneering thinkers – from Plato to Darwin, Binet to Piaget, Luria to Weachsler – are referenced to illustrate major events in the evolution of theories of intelligence, leading to the current era of multiple intelligences and special education programs. In addition, it examines evolutionary concepts in areas as diverse as creativity, culture, neurocognition, emotional intelligence, and assessment.

Interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorders: Translating Science into Practice

SAM GOLDSTEIN & JACK A. NAGLIERI (2013)


Interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorders is an essential resource for researchers, professionals/practitioners, and clinicians in a wide array of fields, including clinical child, school, and developmental psychology; child and adolescent psychiatry; education; rehabilitation medicine/therapy; social work; and pediatrics.

The first volume dedicated solely to its topic, Interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorders provides a comprehensive overview of programs currently in use. Contributors explore programs focusing on long-term outcomes, home- and classroom-based strategies, resilience training for parents, and pharmacological management of symptoms. Background chapters review issues in reliability and validity of interventions and evaluating treatment effectiveness. And an especially cogent chapter discusses the centrality of treatment integrity to best practice.

Assessment tools for psychologists and educators

 

Handbook of Psychology, Assessment Psychology

JOHN R. GRAHAM & JACK A. NAGLIERI (EDS.) (2002)


Psychology is of interest to academics from many fields, as well as to the thousands of academic and clinical psychologists and general public who can't help but be interested in learning more about why humans think and behave as they do. This award-winning twelve-volume reference covers every aspect of the ever-fascinating discipline of psychology and represents the most current knowledge in the field. This ten-year revision now covers discoveries based in neuroscience, clinical psychology's new interest in evidence-based practice and mindfulness, and new findings in social, developmental, and forensic psychology. 






Helping All Gifted Children Learn: A Teacher's Guide to Using the NNAT2

JACK A. NAGLIERI, DINA BRULLES & KIMBERLY LAWSDOWNE (2009) 

Helping All Gifted Children Learn: A Teacher's Guide to Using the NNAT2 is a teacher's guide to using the NNAT2 for instruction of gifted children, especially those from culturally and linguistically diverse settings. The authors provide an explanation of the need for equitable assessment of gifted children and a method to identify them. The use of a nonverbal test of general ability is clearly explained and a discussion of exactly what such a test measures is provided in the first three chapters. The remaining three chapters cover teaching strategies, programming, activities by content area, and program evaluation methods.
 

Assessing Impairment: From Theory to Practice
SAM GOLDSTEIN & JACK A. NAGLIERI (EDS.) (2009)


​Impairment and disability are widely used terms, yet considerable disagreement exists as to their relationship—especially when impairment means different things to different professionals in the fields of mental health, medicine, and education. Although diagnostic criteria for various disorders are clearly detailed in the DSM-IV and elsewhere, criteria for impairment remain elusive. And patients with severe limitations but minimal symptoms, or the reverse, further complicate the discussion. The first in-depth treatment of the theory, definition, and evaluation of this core concept, Assessing Impairment: From Theory to Practice cuts through the confusion and cross-talk. Leading scholars and clinicians offer a robust evidence base for a much-needed reconceptualization of impairment within the context of diagnosis and disability, arguing for a wide-ranging quality-of-life perspective. This contextual approach to assessment goes beyond mere symptom counting, resulting in more accurate diagnosis, targeted interventions, and improved patient functioning.​​





Handbook of Executive Functioning
SAM GOLDSTEIN & JACK A. NAGLIERI (EDS.) (2013)


The Handbook of Executive Functioning cuts through the confusion, analyzing both the whole and its parts in comprehensive, practical detail for scholar and clinician alike. Background chapters examine influential models of EF, tour the brain geography of the executive system and pose salient developmental questions. A section on practical implications relates early deficits in executive functioning to ADD and other disorders in children and considers autism and later-life dementias from an EF standpoint. Further chapters weigh the merits of widely used instruments for assessing executive functioning and review interventions for its enhancement, with special emphasis on children and adolescents.
