Addressing Current Challenges of SLD Evaluations
Session 2: SLD Identification Tools: Using a Variety of Assessments Tools and Strategies.

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:

According to two TEA Guidance Documents (RTI and §89.1040 FAQ): “In conducting an evaluation, schools are encouraged to include criterion-referenced or curriculum-based measures (CBM) to more accurately identify patterns of strengths and weaknesses and link eligibility determinations to instruction.” This session will focus on CBMs for reading (including Dyslexia screeners), math, and writing and the participants will be able to immediately incorporate into their practice. 

Participation in the live Zoom meeting is required to receive credit for this session. 

This is the second part of a four part series. Subsequent dates are 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.
