This is yet another episode that could have been done a LONG time ago, but it was well worth the wait! Dr. David Baker is here to talk through all the considerations of non-credible effort when testing kids. The research shows that a substantial percentage of kids will show non-credible effort during evaluations, yet very few of us are conducting solid effort testing. If you are conducting effort testing, maybe you have questions about what to actually DO with it. If so, this is for you! Here are some topics that we cover:

  • What is non-credible effort?
  • Difference between PVT’s and SVT’s
  • How to interpret non-credible effort
  • Strategies to communicate non-credible effort
