Using PSW to Determine SLD – Webinar
Format: Recorded Webinar
Presenter: Dr. Milton Dehn
The focus of this workshop is on PSW assessment procedures, with an emphasis on Dehn’s PSW model. The webinar includes procedures for identifying statistically significant strengths and weaknesses when multi-battery test results need to be analyzed. Information about the Psychological Processing Analyzer (PPA) is also included. The workshop concludes with a brief review of evidence-based interventions for processing deficits.
This workshop begins with the neuropsychology of 14 psychological and cognitive processes that are highly related with the development of specific academic skills. This is followed by the rationale and evidence-base for using a pattern of strengths and weaknesses (PSW) approach to the identification of SLD.
The workshop continues with procedures for conducting a multi-battery assessment of processes that combines cognitive scales, rating scales, and specific processing scales. This is followed by procedures for analyzing the data, interpreting the results, and determining the processing weaknesses that may be used for identification of specific learning disabilities.
Also included is a demonstration of the Psychological Processing Analyzer, software designed to identify statistically significant strengths and weaknesses following a multibattery assessment. The workshop concludes with an overview of evidence-based interventions for specific processing deficits.
