Dr. Jen Engle, board-certified pediatric neuropsychologist, is here to talk about best practices for assessing motor-impaired children. We cover nearly all aspects of the assessment process, starting with getting the referral and moving through battery selection, how and when to break standardization, and considerations in writing the report. This conversation was absolutely packed with information for anyone who may work with this population or has an interest in doing so. Here are a couple of other topics that we cover:

  • Definition, etiology, and types of motor impairments
  • Why age equivalents are psychometrically unsound
  • Why Jen prefers the Vineland interview format over the questionnaire format
