ON LINE REGISTRATION FORM

 

 

The Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System (D-KEFS) is a nationally standardized set of tests to evaluate higher level cognitive functions in children and adults. With nine standalone tests, clinicians can comprehensively assess the key components of executive functions believed to be mediated primarily by the frontal lobe. Using the client’s profile of executive-function strengths and weaknesses, clinicians can recommend appropriate coping strategies. During this workshop, the presenter will describe administration, scoring, and basic interpretation of the D-KEFS tests.

As a result of this presentation, participants will:

  • describe the fundamental and higher-order executive functions assessed with each of the nine D-KEFS tests
  • discuss administration and scoring of the tests
  • discuss interpretation of the results
