Addressing Current Challenges of SLD Evaluations
Session 1: Understanding SLD by Understanding the Typical Developmental Processes




The purpose of this series is to equip evaluation personnel for the current challenges regrading SLD identification that revolve around COVID19, the Corrective Action Plan, and over- and under-identification of students. These sessions will be delivered in a blended format in the following sequence

a) study materials delivered one week prior to training (1 hour),

b) the virtual training session (3 hours) ,and

c) follow-up activity- consisting of a brief activity and quiz (2 hours), due one week after.

This sequence allows the learner to distribute their learning, reflect and practice, and make connections to their actual practice. 

This session is designed as a four part series. 


Important Session Information:


In order to identify a student as having a SLD, educational diagnosticians must establish where a typical learner is expected to be performing at the same stage of education. This requires an in depth understanding of the typical cognitive, language, and academic developmental processes. This session will include the COVID19 impact on learning and lead to a deeper understanding of student learning (or not learning). 

This session includes presence at a live Zoom meeting to receive credit. 

This is the first part of a four part series. Subsequent dates are 12/3/2020, 01/20/2021, and 02/10/2021. You may attend any or all sessions; however, if you attend the first three, the fourth session will be free. This discount will be applied upon the close of the fourth session.
