Identifying Processing Strengths and Weaknesses for SLD Eligibility

The primary objectives of the discussion include:

  • Educating practitioners about procedures for applying a PSW approach to the SLD.
  • Providing psychometric methods for analyzing the data to determine a PSW are illustrated, along with an introduction to software that uses multi-battery test scores to identify statistically significant strengths and weaknesses.
  • Providing recommendations for applying PSW results to SLD identification. The final segment of the workshop will be a brief overview of evidence-based interventions for a variety of processing weaknesses. The PSW and SLD identification procedures recommended are consistent with California’s SLD criteria.
