  • Improving the Efficacy of SEL school-based Implementations: The SSIS SEL on Review360

    Presenter: Chris Huzinec, MS, Sydney Herndon

    The SSIS SEL is comprehensive Social Emotional Learning program that includes the components needed to Screen, Assess, Intervene, and Monitor students as they develop their SEL competencies. By aligning screening and assessment components with interventions, the SSIS SEL, educators can identify all students’ SEL needs, guide classroom intervention planning, and monitor both student progress and intervention effectiveness. To make these decision-making processes meaningful, the data collected through the SSIS SEL system needs to be available, accessible, and reported in a usable way.

    This presentation discusses how using the web-based platform Review360, facilitates the process of SSIS SEL administration and reporting in better support school based implementations. We discuss how Review360 can support using the SSIS SEL with larger groups of students by providing data in real time and by organizing, aggregating, and disaggregating student results at the school, grade, classroom, and individual student levels as well as by specific student groups (ethnicity, gender, at-risk….). We will also discuss how Review360 can be used in screening, progress monitoring, and evaluating outcomes as well as identifying students for more individualized support.

  • Cognitive Assessment of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD, HSP-P

    The approximately 4.6 million culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students in US schools face a unique set of challenges. They must navigate everyday conversations, develop proficiency in the cognitive academic language that will enable them to understand curriculum content in English, and achieve the same academic standards that all students are expected to meet.

    To meet content and achievement standards, some CLD students require specialized instruction because of an identified disability. When cognitive ability is among the defining characteristics for a disability category, it is important to consider the non-cognitive factors that can affect the performance of CLD students on cognitive tests. This one-hour webinar will describe cultural and linguistic factors clinicians must consider when assessing cognitive abilities of CLD students. The presenter will use examples from work with young children, but the information shared during the presentation will be applicable to bilingual and multi-lingual individuals of all ages.

    Presenter: Cecil Reynolds, Ph.D.

    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.

  • Working Memory and Math, Dybuster, Cogmed

    Presenter: Peter Entwistle, PhD

    Working memory deficits have frequently been found to correlate with some math difficulties while other deficits also contribute to problems in acquiring math skills. This webinar will consider both working memory deficits and students who have difficulties with the ‘mental number line’. Pearson presently offers two relevant programs for addressing these math difficulties: Cogmed working Memory Training and Dybuster. To provide context for understanding the salience of these programs the webinar will define working memory and the ‘mental number line’. Secondly, we will articulate which math difficulties are correlated with working memory deficits and whether there are any age differences in these trends. As expected Cogmed working memory training has been found to result in improvement in working memory, but also, intriguingly, some studies have found improvements in math. Highlights of these studies will be reviewed. Pearson also offers a program called Dybuster in which students directly train the ‘mental number line’ or number line skills. Aspects of this web-based and game-based mathematical program will also be presented along with relevant research highlights. In short, this webinar will provide you with two innovative ways to address problems with math.

In many cases, they need methods to tease out the impact of non-cognitive factors (e.g., acculturation, socioeconomic status, educational disadvantage, bilingualism) that may affect the child’s performance on cognitive tests.

    The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children–Fifth Edition Spanish (WISC–V Spanish) is a culturally and linguistically valid test of cognitive ability for use with Spanish-speaking children ages 6 through 16 years. In addition to providing information on cognitive abilities including verbal comprehension, visual-spatial, fluid reasoning, working memory, and processing speed, the WISC–V Spanish offers language-environment adjusted scores for the verbal subtests and indexes. The WISC–V Spanish is available in digital format using Pearson’s Q-interactive platform, and in the traditional paper format.

    This session will describe the structure of the WISC–V Spanish, features of subtest administration, and interpretation of the language-environment adjusted scores. The session will include a live demonstration of the digital assessment platform.

    Presenter: Cecil Reynolds, Ph.D.

    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.

    While this webinar will spend approximately half of the hour on Cogmed as an evidence-based intervention for ADHD it will consider other options as well. However, as is well known by clinicians, researchers and educators there is no way to do an exhaustive review of evidence-based interventions of ADHD in 1 hour or less, let alone 30 minutes or less. What we will be able to provide is some data for your consideration of the relative strengths and weaknesses of the existing evidence thus far. Some time will be spent considering the impact of medication, Cogmed and other innovative approaches to managing ADHD. We consider this topic worthy of several hours of webinars and as such while we expect we may open up more questions than answers we thought this is useful to provide a forum for consideration of this topic.

    Presenter: Peter C Entwistle, PhD, Charles Shinaver, PhD

    This webinar will shed some light on the effects of Cogmed in the case of comorbidity with ADHD, but moves beyond that to consider children without ADHD those who have other learning concerns. This webinar is intended to further deepen a more nuanced expectation and understanding of the possible effects of Cogmed with a broader range of problems challenging school-aged children. In this webinar the presenting concerns of children will include ADHD, those with learning “disorders” and children with learning “difficulties”. We will consider how the effects of Cogmed might be distinct among these groups. Particular focus will be placed on reviewing the 2016 study by Roording-Ragetlie, et al., titled: “Working Memory Training in children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders”. However, other relevant Cogmed-specific studies will also be considered (Dahlin, 2010 & 2013), Gropper, et al., (2014), as well other salient studies.

  • Why Some Students Struggle to Learn: Assessing Memory and Learning

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    Why do some students seem to remember information immediately after they hear it, but not the following day? And why do some students struggle with mental math? To learn and remember information, individuals begin by encoding the information. They hold the information in short-term memory until a permanent memory trace is created in long-term memory. To show that they have acquired skills and knowledge, they retrieve information from long-term storage.

    This webinar will describe the assessment process that will allow us to understand how a weakness in memory can affect a student’s learning. At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to describe

    1. the process of learning and remembering;
    2. theories of memory and learning; and
    3. commonly used assessments of memory and learning.

  • BASC-3 FLEX Monitor

    Presenter: Cecil Reynolds, PhD

    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.

  • Case Studies: Progress Monitoring and Intervention with Review360 for SLPs*

    Presenter: Tina Eichstadt, MS, CCC-SLP AND Ryan Fast

    It is highly recommended that you watch the Feb 15, 2016 recording (below)--Progress Monitoring and Evidence-Based Intervention with Review360 for SLPs--in advance of this presentation. This earlier webinar gave a tutorial of the Review360 for SLPs product itself. This August webinar takes a clinical focus and assumes familiarity with the product. Thank you!

    This course highlights a tool--Review360 for SLPs--that will manage multiple needs: rigorous, measurable goals, evidence-based intervention, progress monitoring, and reporting needs. An integrated tool for these tasks in clinical practice saves time and increases the ability of SLPs to focus on delivering exceptional services and to communicate the value of those services across stakeholder groups.

    A case-study approach to continuing education allows professionals to consider both clinical and process issues in service delivery. With the ever-increasing need for a focus on clinical outcomes and describing the value of SLP services, progress monitoring and robust reporting on intervention status grows central to the work of SLPs in schools. Increasing demands of a workload approach to clinical practice works together with outcome-based intervention to support relevant SLP practice patterns.
