The Haak-2 is a cognitively oriented sentence completion task where in examinees complete a sentence stem with their own thoughts. The Haak-2 provides a deeper understanding of the thought processes of children and youth and how they react emotionally and cognitively to their world. The online app uses the Haak-2’s organizational structure to re-group the item responses automatically into broad areas of interest for analysis and interpretation. These groups include school, authority, peers, self, emotions, needs, and aspirations among others. The Haak-2 is ideal for use with special education students, other disabled populations such as persons with ED, ASD, ADHD, and others for whom their feelings and emotions may be interfering with their daily functioning. The Haak-2 is also useful in determining proper therapeutic approaches and for moving beyond therapeutic plateaus for those already receiving treatment.
