I read Dr. Robb Mapou’s book, Adult Learning Disabilities and ADHD, several years ago and remember being blown away with the detail of interview questions and strategies for evaluating these concerns. I’m so fortunate to have him on the podcast today to chat about a wide variety of topics related to adult assessment. These are a few areas that we cover:
- More interview strategies for adult evaluations
- The concept of “disability” getting diluted over the years
- Legal guidelines and accommodations for standardized tests like the MCAT, LSAT, and others
- The importance of gathering records in these evaluations
Cool Things Mentioned
- StatMed Learning program
- Robb’s book: Adult Learning Disabilities and ADHD
