Format: Paperback
As a school psychology Intern working with low incident populations (Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Blind students K-12) I have found the book to be of monumental help. I have had this book for two months now, it remains on my desk for easy reference. It is invaluable to read how the experts in the field interpret results and explain complex cases. Just starting out, I often second-guess my language choices and the clarity of my message. It is wonderful to have a reference in which I can find examples of how experts in the field have learned to explain things in a way that is professional and parent friendly.

The reports in this book also provide insight into the test battery selection that other professionals in the field are using. Often when working with low incident populations it is necessary to become creative with assessments to get an accurate picture of a child's current functioning. The book possesses an array of approaches that demonstrates unique assessments. This book also provides a variety of assessment reports from multiple theoretical models, not grounded a one size fits all approach of some other books.

Comprehensive Evaluations: Case Reports for Psychologist, Diagnosticians, and Special Educators was well worth the price, and I have since recommended it to all my classmates and colleagues. I wish this book was around when I was first learning to write psychological reports!

I'm a school psychologist intern, and try to conduct thorough evaluations and write excellent reports. I was really looking for help with explaining some of the test batteries, such as the CAS, NEPSY, WRAML-2, etc. I saw a preview of this book on Google Books and found a fantastic piece on the BASC-2 Self Report (they explained it so simply, beautifully, and yet were detailed on the important parts). I thought the rest of the book would be this way - but it's really hit and miss. Some parts are great, most other parts are interesting but not that useful to me.

The book is a collection of reports done by a variety of examiners, many very well-known. Each have their own style, some I like, some are jargony or just too wordy. Most reports were quite long, and are filled with those daunting WJ-II tables of scores that take up three pages and most readers don't know/need what all that data means anyway. They all organize their reports differently, most do not introduce each individual test but rather integrate everything under "Test Results and Interpretation" with no subheadings. Most of the cases don't follow the Cognitive Ability -> Academics -> Processing -> Social/Emotional format that most school psychologists in California use. I can't find any that have a "Processing" section; many times they assess processing through the WJ-II COG or similar and integrate that into the cognitive findings. This doesn't really work for me, especially since when I'm assessing for a learning disability I want to be very clear that I assessed all processing areas. Besides, it's the format that the district advocates using. The WJ-III COG and ACH batteries are heavily used, along with (and even alongside) the WISC-IV.

I recently worked with a student teacher in my K-12 special education classroom. I purchased this book for her along with 4 other books to begin her professional library. I found this resource to be invaluable in my work. With Nancy Mather, you can't go wrong.
