mental status exam
observations of the client
and at least two psychological tests specific to the diagnostic impressions (e.g.
attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder
post-traumatic stress disorder
autism spectrum disorder
etc.). The assessment plan must be presented as a list of recommended psychological tests and assessment procedures with a brief sentence explaining the purpose of each test or procedure. Following the list of tests and assessment procedures you recommend for your client
compare the assessment instruments that fall within the same categories (e.g.
intelligence test or achievement test)
and debate the pros and cons of the tests and procedures you selected versus the test and procedures reported by the referring professional. If no psychological tests or specific assessment procedures are mentioned in the case study
minimally assume a diagnostic interview was conducted and debate the pros and cons of the tests and procedures you selected versus making a diagnosis based only on a diagnostic interview.
