  • 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.

  • Identifying Cognitive Strengths and Weaknesses: Using KABC-II NU

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD, HSP-P

    Topic(s):

    The Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, Second Edition Normative Update (KABC™-II NU: 2018) maintains the strengths of the KABC-II while providing updated normative information that reflects the changing population of children in the United States. Clinicians who use the KABC-II know that the subtests were designed to minimize verbal instructions and responses to allow for a fair assessment of all examinees, including examinees from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Clinicians especially value the dual-theoretical foundation of the instrument – the Cattell-Horn Carroll (CHC) psychometric model of broad and narrow abilities, and Luria’s neuropsychological theory of processing.

    This webinar will review features of the KABC-II that support interpretation from two different but complementary perspectives, and that allow clinicians to identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses.

    In the school setting, we expect children to learn the skills and concepts that are identified as important for a specific grade level. Speech and language are essential components of the learning process. To receive and make sense of the information the teacher is presenting, children must understand words and sentences. To demonstrate that they have acquired the information, they must produce words to show that they can retrieve information from memory. This webinar will describe how difficulties with understanding and producing language can impact children's performance in the classroom.

    Learner Outcomes

    As a result of this activity, the participants will be able to:

    1. Describe the role of language in the learning process;
    2. Identify how a weakness in language can impact classroom performance;

  • After Dyslexia Screening: There’s Work to Be Done—Let’s go!

    Presenter: Jan Wasowicz, Ph,D., CCC-SLP

    Topic(s):

    Overview

    Universal screening for dyslexia is an important first step in identifying and helping students with dyslexia and other language-based reading and writing problems. It's what happens after the screening that determines if identified students receive the intervention they need to achieve the outcomes all stakeholders want to see. In this webinar, you'll learn how to precisely match diagnostic assessment data with specific multi-linguistic lessons and activities that target the individual student's underlying linguistic deficits and remediate reading and writing deficits using structured literacy intervention. You'll become familiar with how to use this multi-linguistic intervention program to monitor student progress and how to use the collected data for informed decision-making.

    Learner Outcomes

    As a result of this activity, the participants will be able to:

    1. State the goal of each of four steps in the process of identifying and remediating students with dyslexia and name at least one tool that may be used to accomplish each stated goal.
    2. Explain a general limitation of standardized diagnostic tests for planning targeted intervention and provide one specific example.
    3. Describe one prescriptive assessment tool that precisely matches intervention with a student's underlying linguistic deficits; explain how to use that tool to deliver targeted multi-linguistic intervention.
    4. Describe the recommended progression through a targeted, multi-linguistic intervention program, including collection of progress monitoring data, and describe the expected outcomes when implementing this approach.  

    Time-ordered Agenda - Eastern Time Zone

  • 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
