Differentiating an Intellectual Disability from a Learning Difference
Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD
When a student is struggling to master grade-level objectives, in spite of effective teaching, teachers often wonder if the student is capable of learning at the expected rate. A comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation may be conducted to determine if observed academic difficulties are due to lower cognitive abilities or to a pattern of cognitive strengths and weaknesses. This webinar will use a case study to show how data from the WISC-V and WISC-V Integrated, in conjunction with data from other sources, can help clinicians to make diagnostic decisions and generate recommendations for intervention. Participants will learn how to select appropriate assessments, identify the need for additional assessment, and analyze all of the data to determine educational need.
