Clinical Applications of Continuous Performance Tests: Measuring Attention and Impulsive Responding in Children and Adults
The first comprehensive guide to Continuous Performance Test techniques
Continuous Performance Tests (CPTs) are used in the ongoing diagnosis and treatment monitoring of children and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In Clinical Applications of Continuous Performance Tests, three well-respected members of the behavioral assessment field discuss the clinical use and limitations of CPTs, as well as their diagnostic efficacy for disorders first evident in childhood and adolescence and those evident later in adulthood.
This comprehensive handbook is the first to examine the similarities and differences of the numerous CPT techniques and their research literature. The four major instruments in use today are thoroughly reviewed (Conners' CPT, Gordon Diagnostic System, Integrated Visual and Auditory CPT, and Test of Variables of Attention/Test of Variables of Attention-Auditory), along with a complete overview of their specific applications. Additional CPTs are discussed in the context of how modifications to the CPT paradigm can affect results and, subsequently, interpretation. Brain-behavior correlates of CPT scores and the use of CPTs for monitoring effectiveness of treatment approaches are also covered in depth.
For psychologists, psychiatrists, and neurologists who diagnose and treat ADHD, Clinical Applications of Continuous Performance Tests is a unique and invaluable resource.
