31 October 2017

These guidelines are to help individuals holding BPS Qualifications in Test Use in occupational, educational or forensic contexts, who have a requirement to carry out psychometric testing with individuals who are deaf or who have a hearing loss. They may also be helpful to clinical, neuropsychologists and counselling psychologists who are required to assess such individuals.
