  • Cogmed Is Now Easier To Do In Schools

    Presenter: Peter C Entwistle, Ph.D. & Charles Shinaver, Ph.D.

    Topic(s):

    Cogmed provides a distinctive amount and quality of empirical evidence for its effectiveness with over 75 peer reviewed published studies, but this training method is now easier to implement in schools.  In the last couple of years some large scale school implementations of Cogmed have resulted in our staff developing a number of features that help Cogmed work better in schools.  Among those features are the variable protocol (shorter training sessions and fewer days a week of training), fidelity features, built-in generalization measures and Trends reporting which provides schools with the data needed to manage the large scale implantations.  Reporting for the district, school, class, and individual student level is now available. Reports include measures of compliance, motivation, and validity.  Additionally the Cogmed progress indicator gives schools a measure of generalization to nontrained tasks in the areas of working memory, following instructions and math fluency.  The variable protocol allows children to do Cogmed for 25 or 35 minutes a day 3, 4 or 5 days a week. Now Cogmed can fit into school schedules and be managed effectively and efficiently.  Attend this webinar to get a grasp of these important changes.

  • Screening for Cognitive Impairment

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD

    Topic(s):

    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.

  • BASC-3 FLEX Monitor

    Presenter: Cecil Reynolds, PhD

    Topic(s):

    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.

  • 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

  • BASC-3 and ADHD

    Presenter: Cecil Reynolds, Ph.D.

    Topic(s):

    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.
