"This is a dynamic application of dynamic assessment. This is a must-read for clinicians and educators, scholars and practitioners." Kenneth Dodge, Duke University, Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology "Haywood and Lidz, Dynamic Assessment in Practice: Clinical and Educational Applications, is one of the best published works on DA... The authors present a comprehensive, eclectic, and transactional approach that deals with the complexities and richness of human beings' cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning... A strong impression that emerges across the book is that the authors, with their long and rich experience in research and practice, are imbued with a mission to mediate the necessity, importance, and utility of using DA... This book is a must-have for any psychologist or educator who is interested in basic understanding of human functioning and is not limited to those dealing with assessment alone." PsycCritiques
