Identifying Processing Strengths and Weaknesses for SLD Eligibility
Milton Dehn Ed.D.
3 hours running time
This three-hour webinar introduces Milton Dehn’s psychological processing assessment model and a pattern of strengths and weaknesses (PSW) approach to the identification of specific learning disabilities in California. The PSW and Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) identification procedures recommended are consistent with California’s SLD criteria.
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.
