What we've learned from 20 years of CHC COG-ACH relations research: Back to the future and Beyond CHC

A draft of the paper I presented at the 1st Richard Woodcock Institute on Advances in Cognitive Assessment (this past spring at Tufts) can now be read by clicking here. Three of the 12 figures are included below......as a tease :). The final paper will be published by WMF Press.

 

To blog or not to blog...that is the question (December 28 - January 4)

I may be blogging lite, or not at all, from December 28 thru January 4th, as I recovery from some surgery. On the other hand, it may be possible that during my physical "down time" I may find more mind "up time" and may not skip a beat. Regardless, if there is a lull, do to fret, "I shall return"
