Dr. Sharon Truter, in association with Prof. Ann Edwards and Rhodes University, is currently running a research project to establish South African norms for the NEPSY-II. She is looking for assistance from psychologists to collect SA norms for children in disadvantaged schools and requires assistance.
if anyone has access to a NEPSY II test and has access to normal, healthy children (without a history of scholastic problems, head injuries, or psychiatric problems), aged 9, 10, 11, 14, 15 or 16 years, that speak a language other than English as a home language, and that are attending a school of disadvantaged quality (e.g. a township school).The children need speak either Afrikaans, Sesotho, Sepedi, Setswana, Xhosa or Zulu and the psychologists may make use of translators if they need to. The children must be tested in their home language (Sharon will provide the NEPSY II translation for the language needed). Sharon will provide a list of the NEPSY-II subtests required.
Please consider assisting as this benefits all through the establishment of appropriate SA norms. If you are willing to test at least one child, Sharon will send you the relevant translation of the NEPSY II, and the norms once they have been compiled.
The data is required before the end of May. Please contact Sharon at firstname.lastname@example.org
