Hello PSW: Using a Neurocognitive Approach for SLD Eligibility and Targeted Interventions


A pattern of strengths and weaknesses (PSW) method for identifying students with a specific learning disability has gained momentum because it is consistent with IDEA regulations and helps answer the question “Why does the student fail?” School psychologists will learn, from a practitioner’s perspective, how to use the Discrepancy Consistency Method for determining a PSW, with emphasis on the use of the CAS2, FAR, and FAM. Case studies will be presented that illustrate the DCM/PSW method, with a comparison of other assessment tools and methodologies. Additionally, interventions that would follow given the cognitive and academic needs of the student, based on assessment results, will be discussed. The overarching goals are to first, become more familiar with a neuropsychological approach for SLD eligibility determination using the CAS2, FAR, and FAM, and secondly illustrate various scenarios involving students with different disabilities (e.g., Dyslexia, ADHD, math calculation, etc.) and different disorders in basic psychological processes.

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.
