Presented by: Jenny Ponzuric

The purpose of this 2-day training is to provide school psychologists with the information to implement the PSW Model for SLD Identification. Through the use of case studies, psychologists will be able to utilize the two research-based assessment approaches (Cross Battery and Dehn’s Processing Strengths and Weaknesses Model) for students being referred for possible eligibility under SLD. Additional topics of discussion include the role of pre-referral interventions, report writing strategies using a PSW model, and discussions at IEP meetings regarding this model.

VCASP: All Things Considered: IEP Goals in a Post-Endrew F. World/Legal Update
Presented by: Fagan, Friedman and Fulfrost

October 26, 2018 9:00am-12:00pm

The US Supreme Court’s Endrew F. decision sent a clear message to IEP teams that creating “appropriately ambitious” goals for a student is more critical than ever. Through an in-depth look at a few post Endrew F. OAH decisions, we focus on some of the most problematic issues that can arise for IEP teams when designing-and updating- measurable and attainable goals based on current and comprehensive data. The selected cases impart important lessons for school staff and administrators, along with providing several practical takeaways for drafting and implementing defensible IEP goals. Legal update session brings you everything you need to know about the latest developments in special education law, including an overview of important new decisions during 2018 from OAH, along with key court rulings, recent federal guidance and noteworthy legislative updates.
