The School Psychologist and the Exceptional Child.
Scholl, Geraldine T., Ed.
Intended for use with students preparing for careers in school psychology, the text assumes little familiarity with special education and focuses on those aspects of special education of greatest relevance for the assessment process. The book is divided into two major parts: Part I, "General Considerations," includes a brief description of the changing role of the school psychologist, an overview of assessment, and the use of informal procedures as assessment tools. Part II, "Areas of Exceptionality," reviews the specialized characteristics and needs of each category of exceptional pupils. The document contains the following studies: "The Role and Function of the School Psychologist" (G. Scholl); "The Process of Assessment" (P. Elitov); "Non-Test-Based Approaches to Assessment" (E. Oka and G. Scholl); "The Gifted and Talented" (A. Swan); "Mental Retardation" (J. Ardizzone and G. Scholl); "Learning Disabilities" (E. Mollen); "The Emotionally Disturbed" (R. Brown); "Physical and Multiple Handicaps" (S. Tindall and G. Scholl); "Hearing Impairments" (J. Harrison); "Visual Impairments" (G. Scholl); and "Communication Disorders" (G. Scholl and Y. Loucks).
