Revised Sixth Edition


“Put simply, Sattler’s text is a tour de force in the field of assessment psychology.  It remains as relevant today as it was over 45 years ago when the first edition was published. As such, Assessment of Children: Cognitive Foundations and Applications should be considered by any practitioner or trainer who is interested in the clinical assessment of children’s cognitive ability in professional psychology and education.”
