For Immediate Release
University Park, April 22, 2004—Governors State University's Division of Psychology and Counseling is sponsoring training sessions on the WPPSI-II and ABAS-II assessment tools for school psychologists and clinicians in partnership with The Psychological Corporation.
The one day sessions will take place on May 5 and 6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Hall of Honors on the university's main campus, 1 University Parkway, University Park. Session fees are $125.00 for certified school psychologists, $50.00 for students, and $25.00 for one CEU.
The Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI-III) is the premier early childhood assessment tool used to assess cognitive development, intelligence, receptive and expressive vocabulary, processing speed, and reasoning ability.
The tool provides clinically useful information for diagnosis and planning.
The Adaptive Behavior Assessment System (ABAS-II) is a complete assessment of adaptive skills functioning for ages 0-89, now including ages birth to five years.
This system is used to determine how the individual is responding to daily demands, develop treatment and training goals, determine eligibility for services and Social Security benefits, assess individuals with learning difficulties – ADD/ADHD or other impairments, and assess capability of adults to live independently.
The presenter will be Dr. Greg Dietz, a clinical measurement consultant with The Psychological Corporation.
Dietz received his doctorate in Guidance and Psychological Services from Indiana State University in 1981 and a Certificate in Psychotherapy from the Alfred Adler Institute in Chicago.
He has worked as a school psychologist, assistant director of special education, and psychologist in an outpatient mental health setting. In addition, he has been an adjunct faculty member of the Psychology Department at Purdue University.
