Please first read the overview of the Griffiths III Training Courses here.
This is an updated online (web-based) Griffiths III training course that includes additional videos of children and is shorter than the original Video Training Course launched in September 2022. New users are required to complete both the 1) Griffiths III Video Training Course and 2) the Griffiths III Practical Training Course to become a new Griffiths III Registered User. This Griffiths III Video Training Course covers the core knowledge that you should have to be able to use the Griffiths III in assessing children, interpreting the results appropriately and conveying the conclusions to parents and other professionals.
The Griffiths III Video Training Course is divided into 4 modules:
- Introduction: The history of the Griffiths Scales and how the new Griffiths III was developed, and the theory behind psychological testing of children. (~40 min)
- Griffiths III: Overview of the Griffiths III Scales describing all the items in the five Subscales and their administration. (6-10 hrs)
- Scoring, Interpretation and Report Writing. (~1 hr)
- Videos and scoring of two complete Child Assessments. (~1 hr)
Access to the Griffiths III Video Training Course is valid for 6 months. The Video Training Course takes a minimum of 9 to 12 hours to complete, usually spread over several weeks. Actual time required depends on your background knowledge, so it can take considerably longer if you are not familiar with developmental assessments and their principles. However, you may access this course as often as you like during the six months. Before starting you should also have linked with a tutor to reserve a place on the Griffiths III Practical Training Course. You must have completed the Griffiths III Video Training Course before attending the Griffiths III Practical Course.
