Event description
Free for PsychDD members, in this 3 hour professional development event Eirini Lammi will introduce you to two nonverbal IQ assessments.

About this Event

The use of nonverbal IQ assessments are increasingly becoming an integral part of developmental assessments. High stakes decision making in educational and therapeutic intervention are closely linked to accessing funding support, which in turn is largely determined by psychometric testing results. Traditional IQ measures rely heavily on language-based subtests and verbal constructs. Nonverbal intelligence tests were designed to measure general cognition without the confound of language ability. Additional populations such as individuals with hearing loss, learning disabilities, speech-language impairments, culturally and linguistically diverse groups can now be assessed, minimizing the bias effect of verbally loaded IQ measures.

This presentation will provide an overview of current nonverbal IQ measures, including the Universal Nonverbal Intelligence Test 2nd Edition (UNIT 2) and The Leiter International Performance Scale - Third Edition (Leiter-3).

Eirini Lammi is a registered psychologist with over 20 years’ experience working in educational and clinical settings. Eirini has worked at ACER for over 13 years, supporting psychologists and clinicians in the use of psychological assessments. Eirini specialises in providing expertise in training and consultancy of evidence-based psychometric assessments to psychologists and organisations utilising standardised instruments for selection, leadership and development solutions.

A Certificate of attendance will be provided as evidence for your CPD Portfolio. There will be opportunity for questions and discussion, as well as morning tea.
