Assessment of  Children was nominated as one of the 50 great books in psychology.  - Teaching of Psychology, 1994

“Assessment of Children: Behavioral, Social, and Clinical Foundations: Fifth Edition is comprehensive, well-written, surprisingly easy to read, and so well organized that it will continue to be a primary text for school psychologists in training. It is also a wonderful reference because of its breadth, depth, organization, and tables/appendices. Issues that are addressed in this text are issues that confront the practicing school psychologist on a daily basis. As noted above, the text stands alone in the quantity, quality, utility, readability, and organization of information on assessment of children for intervention, and remains consistent with Jerome Sattler’s history of writing excellence. This is the text against which all others will be measured.”
Tom Cushman, Communiqué (2006)
