APT Test Attention Process Training Test

Developed by McKay Moore Sohlberg, Ph.D. and Catherine Mateer, Ph.D., the APT test is a screening measure originally designed for use with the APT1 and APT2 programs. It is an indicator to help clinicians target different types of attention in the client’s assessment and development of a treatment program. It is not a normed psychometric test. Users of the new computerized APT3 program need not use the APT Test as the APT3 manual details a number of standardized attention tests as well as rating scales that can provide a good indication of what attention areas to work on and offer an outcome measure. The APT3 can be found at http://www.lapublishing.com/apt3-attention-process-training/
