CDE Dyslexia Guidelines and School Psychologists


The California Department of Education has developed guidelines regarding assessment, identification and intervention for students with dyslexia (AB 1369). This workshop will review those guidelines and provide school psychologists with critical information they need to know to effectively help their schools in implementing the guidelines. It is critical that school psychologists become knowledgeable about this disorder, how to fits into eligibility decision making, methods of assessment and how to decide on the best intervention.

A School Based Approach to Promoting the Optimal Development of Black Boys


Academic and life success of Black boys is a critical task of schools. However, many school-based interventions use deficit models of behavior and rarely attend to the unique developmental needs of Black school aged boys. School-based interventions can promote sustainable changes if they are placed in a life course framework. The workshop will build the capacity of school psychologists, administrators and teachers to: 1) define optimal development with parents and communities; 2) design interventions that promote optimal development; and 3) create metrics that account for the strengths and assets of Black boys and their families.

AB2246 & Developing Your Suicide Prevention Policy: What School Leaders Should Know


As a school psychologist, you could advise your school or school district on what to include in the district’s Suicide Prevention Policy, which is now mandated by state law. AB 2246, passed in 2016, states that school districts that serve grades 7-12 must have a suicide prevention policy in place by the start of the 2017-18 school year. The policy guidelines were released by CDE in May and offer an opportunity for school psychologists to ensure that school boards pass sound policies.
