Do you include a PVT as part of your standard ADHD battery? If not, I bet you will after this episode! Drs. Julie Suhr and Allyson Harrison are here today talking through their research and experience with validity issues in ADHD assessment. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering if that young adult client REALLY has ADHD or if you should be considering other factors or diagnoses, this is the episode for you.
Dr. Joel Schneider is here talking about the evolution of cognitive theory and assessment. I’ve been reading Joel’s blog for about 10 years now, and he is not only a great writer but a deep thinker and excellent storyteller. These traits are on full display during the podcast today as Joel takes us on a journey through the philosophical and practical history of cognitive theory.
So many podcast episodes are born from conversations with my consulting clients. This one is no exception. I’ve been asked so many times, “How do you make connections with potential referral sources?” We’re all told that “networking” is important, but what does that actually look like in real life? (Hint: call it “building relationships” instead). This episode is all about developing connections with other professionals, schools, and physicians.
Today’s episode is an attempt to answer a question that I get a lot from consulting clients and the Facebook group: how do you find a consultation group as a post-graduate clinician? I’ve benefited greatly from a few consultation groups over the years, and I recommend joining a consultation group as one of the pillars of building a practice.
Welcome to another Masterclass episode! If you missed the first one with Dr. Stephanie Nelson, definitely check that one out. Today my guest is Dr. Steve Feifer, developer of the Feifer family of academic measures. We’re talking all about reading disorders and executive functioning.

If not, that’s okay – she’s here today to explain everything about Form Publisher. We talk about what it is, what it does, and how it can help us as testing psychologists.
Today’s episode is an excerpt from a recent presentation that I gave to the Group for Rural Internship Training (GRIT) on pediatric assessment. This particular excerpt focuses on the diagnostic interview portion of the evaluation.
Today I’m talking about my experience with journaling for productivity. Back in December 2020, after a completely insane year, I found myself feeling a little aimless in my businesses. I felt that I needed more deliberate reflection that fell outside of my typical quarterly retreats. Knowing that a lot of high performers have used journaling in some form or another, I decided to take a deep dive into the world of planners, journals, and so forth to see if that’s what I needed.
Have any of you worked with non-verbal kids? Many of us have. I’ve had several kids who were not speaking well into childhood and struggled with diagnostic impressions. In a few cases, it turned out to be selective mutism. My guest today, Dr. Aimee Kotrba, is an expert in this area. Aimee has specialized in selective mutism for years and shares a ton of helpful information during our interview.
