The Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at the New School seeks an adjunct instructor to teach Diagnostic Assessment of Children. The class is expected to cover topics related to intelligence testing, personality assessment/development, academic performance and neuropsychological assessment, including considerations regarding assessment with underserved, bilingual, and groups with minority status.
This course combines didactics and practical elements; students are expected to acquire knowledge about the theory and empirical basis of assessment and diagnosis in children, and also to complete an in-person assessment with a child, that includes cognitive and self-report measures, as well as classroom observation. Thus, the course instructor should be able to facilitate testing within a school or community site, and should be licensed in psychology in New York State.
The course runs for a weekly two hour block during the fall term and is expected to run in person, with a group of approximately ten students. Available supports to the instructor include a teaching assistant and testing materials.
A sample syllabus and current course description are available by request.
