The Northern California Neuropsychology Forum invites you to our spring symposium:
   
   The Joys of Multilingual Neuropsychological Assessment

...With Tedd Judd, Ph.D.
    Neuropsychologists are increasingly discovering the challenge, necessity, feasibility, and satisfaction of providing competent cross-language evaluations. Currently, 44% of California’s population speaks a language other than English at home. Many neuropsychologists approach evaluations of clients who do not share their language with guilt, shame, and fear. This symposium will present protocols and tools for such work and directions for acquiring needed skills. Topics will include ethics, professional preparation, case selection, pre- and post-evaluation cultural research, interpreter-use skills, cultural history-taking, testing considerations, bilingual evaluation, and cultural/linguistic adaptation of evaluation outcomes. This presentation aims to transform multilingual assessment into an experience of accomplishment, satisfaction, discovery, and professional renewal. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Learn to evaluate the linguistic, cultural, immigration, and acculturation backgrounds of their patients and utilize these factors to inform their neuropsychological services.

    2. Identify the advantages, disadvantages, and ethical considerations involved in various modes of language communication in assessment, including use of live interpreters, phone or video interpreters, bilingual psychometrists/interpreters.

    3. Identify principles of test translation/adaptation; means of finding, evaluating, acquiring, and using non-English tests; and pragmatic and ethical approaches to evaluation when only suboptimal tests are available.
