  • Advanced Interpretation of the WISC-V

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    Topic(s):

    The test structure of the WISC–V was influenced by structural models of intelligence, neurodevelopmental theory and neurocognitive research, and research with clinical populations. The changes in conceptual structure, along with changes to the score differences comparison methodology, and the expansion of process scores enhance the interpretive clarity of the instrument. For example:

    • The availability of separate Visual-Spatial and Fluid Reasoning index scores on the WISC-V allows clinicians to better understand why a child is struggling to perform specific academic skills.
    • The addition of visual working memory enhances the scale’s clinical utility due to the domain-specific differential sensitivity of auditory and visual working memory tasks to a wide variety of clinical conditions.
    • Complementary subtests provide information on the cognitive processes associated with reading, mathematics, and writing skills.

    This one-hour webinar will focus on the interpretation of the WISC-V. The presenter will describe primary, ancillary, and complementary indexes and will use sample data to illustrate the interpretive process. As a result of the session, participants will be able to describe:

    1. The cognitive processes represented by the WISC-V index scores,
    2. The theoretical link between specific cognitive abilities and specific academic skills, and
    3. How to use performance on the WISC-V to generate hypotheses about processing deficits.

  • MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview

    Presenter: MMPI expert, Yossef S. Ben-Porath, PhD

    Topic(s):

    This webinar presentation provides a brief overview of the rationale for, and methods used to develop the MMPI-2-RF, and the various materials available to score and interpret the test. 

    Composed of 338 items, with the RC (Restructured Clinical) Scales at its core, the MMPI-2-RF builds on the strengths of the MMPI®-2. It features 51 new and revised empirically validated scales and takes only 35-50 minutes to administer. The MMPI-2-RF was released in August 2008.

    The MMPI-2-RF aids clinicians in the assessment of mental disorders, identification of specific problem areas, and treatment planning in a variety of settings. The test can be used to help:

    • Assess major symptoms of psychopathology, personality characteristics, and behavioral proclivities.
    • Evaluate participants in substance abuse programs and select appropriate treatment approaches.
    • Assess medical patients and design effective treatment strategies, including chronic pain management.
    • Provide valuable insight for marriage and family counseling.
    • Support classification, treatment, and management decisions in criminal justice and correctional settings.
    • Identify high-risk candidates in public safety screening and selection settings.
    • Give strong empirical foundation for expert testimony in forensic evaluations.

    Continuing Education (CE) credits are not offered for this webinar. For information on upcoming MMPI-2-RF CE workshops, visit http://www.pearsonclinical.com/mmpiworkshops

  • Bridging the Achievement Gap: Allie's Story

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    Topic(s):

    Allie is a 9-year-old student who recently completed the fourth grade. She exhibits excellent creative story-telling skills and a strong oral vocabulary, but she is struggling to master grade-level objectives in reading and spelling. Reading difficulties were first identified when Allie was in Kindergarten, and, over the years, her teacher and the reading specialist have provided tutoring and other reading interventions. Despite instruction and targeted intervention, Allie continues to struggle with written language. Her mother requested a psycho-educational evaluation to determine Allie’s eligibility and need for direct specialized instruction, and to identify appropriate instructional goals. This webinar will describe and analyze the results of the evaluation in an effort to understand (1) why Allie has not responded to reading interventions; (2) if Allie has a Specific Reading Disability (Dyslexia); and (3) what interventions are needed to improve Allie’s academic performance.

  • Making Meaning with The Work Sampling System

    Presenter: Judy Jablon, MS

    Topic(s):

    Becoming keen observers of children is an important step in effectively scaffolding children’s learning. When teachers have a deep understanding of child development and learning across multiple domains, they can make more easily make meaning of their observations. They tune into a child’s agenda to make on the spot decisions about how to extend learning that fits the child and the situation.  In this one-hour webinar, Work Sampling System author Judy Jablon will discuss how The Work Sampling System helps educators to be fluent in children’s development and learning across domains and how this fluency supports the essential step of making meaning and scaffolding learning effectively. She will highlight how Work Sampling offers teachers a common language for talking with colleagues about teaching and learning so that together they can share strategies for effective supporting all learners.

  • Introducing the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children Fifth Edition Integrated (WISC-V Integrated)

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    Topic(s):

    The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children–Fifth Edition Integrated (WISC–V Integrated) is an individually administered clinical instrument designed to assess the cognitive ability and problem-solving processes of children aged 6 years 0 months through 16 years 11 months. The WISC-V Integrated will be published in 2015. The instrument was designed to merge the clinical utility and features of the WISC-V with standardized measures, included on the WISC-V Integrated, to capture an examinee’s problem-solving approach and cognitive processes. The WISC-V Integrated reflects the importance of a process-oriented approach to assessment which requires quantitatively derived scores and emphasizes qualitative interpretation of test performance.

    This one-hour webinar will describe the components and clinical utility of the WISC-V Integrated. As a result of the session, participants will be able to (1) describe the subtests from the WISC-V Integrated; and (2) describe how performance on the WISC-V Integrated subtests can be used to understand an examinee’s cognitive processes, problem-solving strategies, and other test behaviors.
