The purpose of the present chapter is to provide some of the basic assessment-related knowledge that would be expected of a psychologist who is preparing to work with older adults, and to provide suggestions for addressing some of the challenges of assessing older adults. The chapter was prepared with the assumption that clinicians at the novice and intermediate levels would particularly benefit from the information.
