  • Screening for Cognitive Impairment

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    At the same time the US population is aging at an unprecedented rate, the number of individuals with cognitive impairment is increasing rapidly. While cognitive health has been identified as a priority area for aging and public health agencies, the opportunity to evaluate symptoms of cognitive impairment is overlooked and the diagnosis of cognitive impairment is often missed. Although a definitive diagnosis of cognitive impairment necessitates a thorough evaluation of several cognitive domains and other patient factors, screening for cognitive impairment can be relatively quick and easy. This webinar will define cognitive impairment and several related terms, and discuss the importance and process of screening for cognitive impairment.

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    The BASC-3 Flex Monitor is a revolutionary new tool that will allow psychologists to develop and apply unique self-report and behavior rating scales with known psychometric qualities that are then normed against the BASC-3 nationally standardization sample. Psychologists may design such forms for unique cases for applications in following the progress of any given case (N=1) or may develop a specialized self-report or behavior rating scale for parents and/or teachers that is applicable to children and youth in specific programs within a school or clinic setting, designed specifically to match the treatment goals of the program. The current webinar will focus on the development and clinical applications of this unique technology as a means to improve treatment outcome as well as improve programs for intervention with individuals with emotional and behavioral disorders. Specific instruction regarding the development of individualized forms by the clinician will be provided along with evaluating reliable change and the sharing of forms across clinicians within a common account system.

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    This is "An overview of the new TEA-Ch2." The TEA-Ch is a test of children's attention, first developed in 1997, and it has recently been revised in the UK. We will review the administration, and background to the test, and explore the new features.  We will review the new sub-tests for children aged 5-7 years TEA-Ch2 J, and will explore the tests for ages 8 -15 years TEA-Ch2 A. We will review the standardization and norms, reliability, evidence of validity and special group studies. Attendees will learn how the test now covers a broader age range than the predecessor, and a much larger sample size. The scoring system will automatically generate scaled scores and index scores. A lot of the new test components are now conducted on the computer, but there are still paper and pencil tasks for children to complete. The computer presents auditory stimuli, test timing and automatic scores to enhance accuracy. Attendees will learn how it differs from the earlier version and other tests of attention in the market.

  • Creating Brief SEL Competency-Focused Interventions with the SSIS SEL CIP

    Presenter: Stephen N. Elliott, Ph.D.

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    During this webinar, Dr. Elliott will show how the CIP can be conceptualized as a set of brief (3 to 6 week) interventions that focus on an SEL competency area, such as Social Awareness Skills (3 Skill Units), Self-Management Skills (6 skill units), Relationship Skills (6 skill units) or Responsible Decision Making Skills (5 skill units). Dr. Elliott will also show how the Screening/Progress Monitoring System could be abbreviated as well to only assess the area of interest or to assess a personalized subset of SEL competencies and academic skill. These brief SSIS SEL competency-focused interventions can facilitate Tier 2, Tier 3, and Special Education services for students with identified skill performance or acquisition deficits and need more intensive support to improve their social emotion skills.

    Participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with previous comprehensive SSIS SEL edition webinars on the new SEL assessments and Classwide Intervention Program (CIP) prior to this webinar on Brief Interventions. The previous webinar recordings can be viewed at your leisure via the link below.

  • Central Auditory Processing: What Age Should We Test?

    Presenter: Donna Geffner, PhD, CCC-SLP/A

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    There is controversy over the age at which a CAPD can be diagnosed in children. The notion that one has to wait until age 7 or 8 is unfounded. Evidence is strong that CAPD can be identified earlier than age 7 for the purposes of treatment and management. This webinar will provide a rationale for early testing and the instruments available to identify youngsters at risk. Case studies will be presented that show that early identification leads to effective intervention and better academic outcomes.

  • Ask Dr. Behave: Universal Screening 101

    Presenter: Adam Bauserman, PhD

    Topic(s):

    We, as educators, have often examined or assessed our students to determine their learning needs. Specifically, there is an established tradition of using measures of academic skills in order to provide an early identification of those students who would benefit from additional instruction and support in core subjects like Reading and Math. On a whole, educators are less familiar with the processes and tools needed to provide similar services regarding students’ behavior, social development, and mental well-being. So, if we're not experts in these areas, how can we help them? Join Dr. Adam Bauserman as he sheds some light on Universal Screening and how it can benefit you and your students.

  • The Path to Success for Young Children: Integrating Curriculum and Assessment

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD and Beth Alley Wise

    Topic(s):

    Children in pre-kindergarten classrooms do amazing things all day, every day. Some of the things they do are teacher-directed, some are spontaneous. As early childhood educators, we provide children with experiences and opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge, and behavior that have been demonstrated to predict learning. We also observe children’s performance to determine how to adjust and modify instruction. This dynamic interplay between instruction and assessment ensures our young learners are on the path to lifelong success.

    This webinar will describe a comprehensive assessment and instruction solution that integrates The InvestiGator Club, a preschool curriculum that focuses on ten critical domains of learning, and The Work Sampling System, an authentic observational assessment that helps teachers individualize instruction.

  • Adaptive Behavior Profiles in Autism Spectrum Disorders

    Presenter: Celine Saulnier, Ph.D.

    Topic(s):

    Deficits in adaptive behavior are, by definition, criteria for Intellectual Disability. Yet in autism, adaptive delays tend to be above and beyond what would be expected based on cognitive impairments, alone. This gap between cognition and adaptive behavior appears to widen with age and impedes functional independence into adulthood. Moreover, patterns of strengths and weaknesses within adaptive domains raise concerns about the use of composite scores that wash out significant differences. This presentation will outline these profiles of adaptive behavior and discuss the importance of assessing for and teaching adaptive skills from initial diagnosis of ASD throughout the lifespan. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Define adaptive behavior & differentiate adaptive behavior from cognition or ability
    2. Describe common profiles of adaptive functioning in ASD for individuals with and without cognitive impairment
    3. Identify effective treatment strategies for enhancing adaptive functioning

    This training will focus on development and application of a comprehensive approach to careful diagnosis and specific interventions for ADHD under the BASC-3 models of assessment and intervention.  The BASC-3 models focus  not just on eligibility, but developing a comprehensive diagnosis and understanding of the student. Differential diagnosis that leads to a process of identification of evidence-based interventions tailored to student needs will be emphasized.  Current DSM 5 criteria are emphasized in the diagnostic process but matching to interventions is also considered important.   Actuarial approaches will be emphasized but the need to integrate these approaches to individual children will also be stressed and approaches to involving parents in the process will be discussed.  A brief discussion of the history of ADHD is given and the controversies surrounding its diagnosis addressed.  Comprehensive behaviorally based differential diagnosis is then emphasized, leading to both psychosocial and educational interventions. The need and means of monitoring treatment effectiveness are also addressed.
