APT-TEST : attention process training (2nd ed.)

Author: Sohlberg, McKay Moore 

SummaryThe Attention Process Training Test (APT-TEST) is used to evaluate several components of attention based on a clinically derived taxonomy of attention skills. The test is an outgrowth of, and was specifically designed for use with, the Attention Process Training (APT) materials. This is a set of treatment tasks designed to improve attention in adolescents and adults with acquired disorders of attention and working memory. The APT training materials are based on a 5-level clinical model of attention and have been documented to facilitate improved attentional functioning in multiple clinical trials. Performance on the APT-TEST can be used to help identifiy different components of attention that are impaired and the nature and level of APT treatment tasks that will be most appropriate for individuals.
