Presented by: Jenny Ponzuric

The purpose of this training is to provide school psychologists with the information to implement the Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses (PSW) Model for SLD Identification. Through the use of case studies, psychologists will be able to utilize the research-based assessment approach of Cross Battery (Dual Discrepancy/Consistency Model) for students being referred for possible eligibility under Specific Learning Disability.

CVA-CASP: OHI, ED & Autism Eligibility
January 12, 2018 1:00-4:30pm

Presented by: Jennifer Rowe Gonzalez & Kathleen McDonald

Why can it be so tricky to determine if a student is eligible under the category of ED, OHI or Autism? Since category of eligibility doesn’t dictate services (in general), why does it matter which category is used? Is it possible to find very young children eligible under ED? What do the terms “over a long period of time and to a marked degree”, “heightened alertness”, “limited alertness”, and “adversely affects” educational performance mean? How do the limiting factors come into play-how should they be analyzed in your assessment report, and how do you discuss touchy subjects sensitively yet clearly? These questions and more will be answered at this workshop.

SCASP & Stanislaus SELPA: A Five Dimensional Model of Executive Function: Cognition, Behavior, Social-Emotional, Academics and Impairment
January 25, 2018 8:30am-3:30pm

Presented by: Jack Naglieri, PhD

This presentation will describe a five-dimensional model of executive function (EF); intelligence (e.g CAS2), observable behaviors (e.g. CEFI), social-emotional skills (e.g. DESSA), academic achievement (e.g. FAR), and impairment (e.g. RSI). It will include a discussion of the theory, assessment and research relevance of tools that can be used to form a comprehensive assessment of EF across these dimensions and a way to measure the amount of impairment an EF weakness creates. Benefits include a broad view of EF that can be used to guide assessment and improve academic, behavioral and social-emotional skills.
