New Jersey School Psychologists are invited to attend a workshop presented by the Association of Learning Consultants.
This workshop will focus on collaborative assessment and intervention between School Psychologists, Learning Disability Teacher- Consultants, Speech and Language Pathologists, School Social Workers, and other specialized instructional support personnel, throughout each tier of the service delivery continuum. Although behavior and social emotional factors clearly impact learning, the primary focus of this presentation will be on academics and learning.
This session will help participants: 1) understand the distinction between genuine collaboration and shared participation; 2) increase understanding of the relationship between cognitive processes and roles in learning and academic success within an applied setting; 3) develop a model for collaborative data collection, informal assessment, and intervention planning; and 4) develop a model for collaborative comprehensive evaluation planning, interpretation, and communication of results.
Emphasis will be on the practical application of skills to practice and NJTSS.
