The course comprises five modules that provide an understanding of the rationale and evidence behind the ESB; its development from a research tool to a standardised and psychometrically robust clinical assessment; administration, scoring and interpretation of the tasks that make up the ESB; and implications for clinical diagnosis and intervention. Lively visual presentation of information is interspersed with short quizzes to support learning, videos of children participating in the ESB to illustrate administration and practice scoring; and case studies to demonstrate application in practice.
