Most of the content on this website is accessible to any members of the public who are interested in knowing more about ARICD and the Griffiths Scales.
However, certain content is restricted to users based on their relationship with the association. We have four additional levels of access to this site, which correspond to the levels of membership of the association:
- Website user
- Registered User of the Griffiths Scales
- Member of ARICD
- Griffiths Tutor
These levels of access are hierarchical, meaning that you must have one level of access before you can be granted the next. You can check your access levels by clicking SUBSCRIPTION from MY ACCOUNT.
We ask that you create an account with the website if you wish to access any of the non-public pages of this website as illustrated above.
Registered Users of the Griffiths Scales are recognised individuals who have become qualified in the use of the Griffiths Scales and have registered and therefore have permission to purchase resources from Hogrefe, the Test Agency. There are two types, each with a different pathway to Registered User status:
- Registered User of past versions of the Griffiths Scales
If you were successfully trained in the previous versions of the Griffiths Scales (e.g.,GMDS-ER), then you had to pay a Registration Fee to become a recognised Registered User. You can check your account Subscription to see if the website already has you as a Registered User. If you have not yet upgraded to Griffiths III, you will have to take the Video Training Course to become Registered.
- Registered User of Griffiths III
To become a new Registered User of Griffiths III you must first complete a two-stage course process (find out more here). At the end of this, subscription as a Griffiths III Registered User will be added to your website account by our admin team.
[NB – please be aware that ARICD have a small, volunteer-led team, and that changes of status may take some time to complete. You will be able to see the updated status of your membership on the Subscriptions tab of your Account page)
Member of ARICD
Once you have become a Registered User of the Griffiths Scales, you are eligible to become a Member of ARICD to help support its activities. You can find information about membership benefits and how to apply on the membership page.
Once you have been a member for 2 years, you can apply to become a Tutor (more details here). Your application must be approved by the Training Committee.
