Workshop Content

Appropriate for ages 3-16 years, the NEPSY II has been translated from English into Afrikaans, Sesotho, Sepedi, Setswana, isiZulu and isiXhosa. Besides the available US norms, preliminary norms for South African disadvantaged children aged 10-11 and 15-16 years are available and further norm research is being done.

The NEPSY II test helps psychologists assess, understand and diagnose individual difficulties that children might have with learning, attention, behaviour, language, perception, motor ability and social/interpersonal functioning. The test also helps to assess school readiness. Based on Lurian theory, the following domains can be tested using the NEPSY II: Attention and Executive Functioning; Language; Memory and Learning; Sensorimotor; Visuospatial Processing and Social Perception.

This two-day workshop will be a practical, hands-on workshop, where delegates will learn how to administer and score the subtests of the NEPSY II and to interpret the test results in the context of brain-behaviour relationships.

The workshop includes an optional practical component to help the delegates solidify what has been learned  and  to help collect further norms. For the practical, delegates need to test two healthy children, aged 10, 11, 15 or 16 years with disadvantaged quality of education on a selection of NEPSY   II subtests that takes approximately 1 – 1 ½ hour(s) per child.

Participants doing this practical will receive:

•   Additional CPD points;

•   The translations and

•   The norms when they are compiled

Duration

2 full days (08:00-16:30)
