California Association of School Psychologists


Three PSW and SLD Identification Webinars Now Available

Our recently added online workshops take a look at PSW and SLD identification. Each one is different in length of time, opinion and ways to integrate the topic into your practice. “Utility of Cross-battery Assessment and Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses in SLD Identification: The Cross-Battery Approach, SLD Identification, and Evaluation of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students,” is a 3.5-hour webinar headed by Dr. Vincent C. Alfonso. This workshop begins with a description of Cross-Battery Assessment, highlighting the many ways in which the approach has improved and focus on the main cross-battery software program.

Dr. Milton Dehn’s take on PSW and SLD Identification, “Identifying Processing Strengths and Weaknesses for SLD Eligibility” is a three-hour webinar that introduces Dehn’s psychological processing assessment model and a pattern of PSW approaches to the identification of specific learning disabilities in California. And Karen Apgar’s 2.5 hour webinar, “An Integrated Model for the Identification of Specific Learning Disabilities” you will learn an assessment model to identify specific learning disabilities within a multi-tiered system of support, using a PSW methodology. This model has the potential to reduce inappropriate referrals and create more accurate, detailed and legally-defensible evaluations.
Check out all of the new webinars including the presentations on suicide prevention and ED behavior. All qualify for BBS and NCSP credits.
