Psychological Assessment 

 

Psychological assessment of autistic children using standard tests can be a valuable tool for evaluation and treatment planning. However, such assessment can be difficult, and requires careful understanding and management of the handicaps characteristic of autism. This article describes common problems that arise in testing autistic children, gives guidelines for test selection, and discusses the applicability of a number of standard tests to this population. It also presents general principles for test administration and behavior management during testing.
