Attorneys who take this course will realize that getting a positive ruling on “meeting or equaling” a specified mental handicap is now considerably more challenging. As an applied course, the instructor will demonstrate how attorneys can effectively develop and argue the theory of their case for 12.02 Neurocognitive Disorders, 12.05 Intellectual Disorders, and 12.11 Neuro-developmental Disorders using psychometric test findings (WAIS-IV & WMS-IV) contained in DDS consultative exams. The course handout will include hands-on resource material that can be used directly to cases.
If time allows, the teacher will discuss posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is no longer included in 12.06 Anxiety-Related Disorders. Attorneys will see that, while its inclusion in the revised 12.15 Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders is theoretically sound, it is nearly hard to fulfill or meet definitionally.
