  • Pearson Clinical Assessments & Your Clinical Trials: More Effective, More Efficient

    Presenter: Charles Shinaver, PhD, HSPP

    Pearson is a world leader in clinical assessments. While Pearson has offered assessments for clinical trials for some time we have expedited our processes. We intend to more clearly articulate them so you can move through the process of licensing and training raters more efficiently and effectively. We will also direct you to which of our staff members provide what functions. In several areas Pearson produces gold standard assessments including cognitive/ability, memory, neuropsychology, behavior, mental health, personality/psychopathology, achievement and speech/language. These tools have relevance in several therapeutic areas including neurology, CNS, psychiatry, diabetes, oncology, cardiovascular disease and gastroenterology among others. This webinar will remind you of which assessments have been used with which diseases. We will explain our rater qualifications and importantly elucidate various opportunities for rater training including onsite training, live webinars, recorded webinars, consultation, and PDFs. We will differentiate when you can buy our products “straight off the shelf”, when you need a license, and how you can find and confirm which tests are in which languages. Finally we will highlight a couple of crucial points, the difference between a general license and a master license agreement (MLA) and the benefits you derive from engaging in an MLA which can facilitate more trials more efficiently. Finally, even when you don’t have time to do an MLA we will explain how you can expedite the clinical trials process with us.

  • Presurgical psychological evaluation for spinal cord stimulation

    Presenter: Daniel Bruns, PsyD, FAPA

    The current opioid crisis has led to increased interest in alternative forms of pain treatment. One of these is spinal cord stimulation (SCS), which is an electrical treatment for pain. Research studies on SCS have shown that while there is evidence that it can alleviate pain, there is also a significant risk of complications. Studies have also shown that SCS outcome can be predicted by psychological assessment methods.

    This webinar will include:

    • A brief review of the nature of spinal cord simulation and related treatments, and how they are used to treat pain and other conditions;
    • A brief review of medical treatment guidelines for chronic pain, and why the majority of them require presurgical psychological assessment for spinal cords stimulators;
    • Theoretical paradigms of chronic pain and delayed recovery that have been adopted by guidelines;
    • Biopsychosocial risk factors for poor SCS outcome that have been identified by empirical and clinical consensus methods; and
    • Extensive supplementary materials will also be provided.
    • The use of the BHI 2 Medical Intervention Risk Report will also be discussed in this context.

  • Implications of Depression on Medical Conditions

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD, Charles Shinaver, PhD

    Depression has been found to be comorbid with a variety of chronic medical conditions.

  • Screening Communication Skills to Identify At-Risk Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers Using the PLS-5 Screening Tests

    Presenter: Adam Scheller, PhD

    From the time a child comes into the world, the ability to attend to, interact with, and communicate with others is key to learning about the world around them and forming key concepts that as a foundation for later academic learning and successful interactions with others. However, many studies indicate that a significant number of children do not successfully acquire the speech and language skills they need prior to beginning school. Identifying at-risk children early is crucial to providing early intervention services that help close the gap for children before they begin formal academic instruction.

    The Preschool Language Scales-5th Edition Screening Tests for Early Childhood Educators (PLS-5 Screening for Early Childhood Educators) is a quick speech and language screening that can be administered to children from birth through age 6 in 5-10 minutes. Results of the screening help identify at-risk children who may be appropriate for additional testing. This session will provide an overview of the English and Spanish editions of the screening tests and provide examples of the screening items, scoring, and next steps based on the screening results.

  • Adaptive Behavior Profiles in Autism Spectrum Disorders

    Presenter: Celine Saulnier, Ph.D.

    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

  • Clinical Application of the Cognitive Linguistic Quick Test+ for SLPs

    Presenter: Adam Scheller, PhD

    The CLQT was designed to quickly assess strengths and weaknesses in five cognitive domains (Attention, Memory, Executive Functions, Language, and Visuospatial Skills). The CLQT+ adds an important element--an optional new administration path for people with diminished language capacity/aphasia. Including one new semantic comprehension task and scoring for several elements within the current tasks, the CLQT+ offers: more flexibility in administration; clearer interpretation for people with aphasia/language impairment; the same foundation for a quick, reliable cognitive assessment; and an effective tool for English- or Spanish-speaking adults with known or suspected neurological impairment as a result of stroke, traumatic brain injury, or dementia. With new changes to an assessment come possible new uses and effective methods for clinicians to maximize the potential data gathered during an evaluation. Attendees will learn about changes to this trusted assessment and focus will be made on how to use this assessment effectively in clinical practice.

  • The Path to Success for Young Children: Integrating Curriculum and Assessment

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD and Beth Alley Wise

    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.

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

    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.

  • Creating Brief SEL Competency-Focused Interventions with the SSIS SEL CIP

    Presenter: Stephen N. Elliott, Ph.D.

    During this webinar, Dr. Elliott will show how the CIP can be conceptualized as a set of brief (3 to 6 week) interventions that focus on an SEL competency area, such as Social Awareness Skills (3 Skill Units), Self-Management Skills (6 skill units), Relationship Skills (6 skill units) or Responsible Decision Making Skills (5 skill units). Dr. Elliott will also show how the Screening/Progress Monitoring System could be abbreviated as well to only assess the area of interest or to assess a personalized subset of SEL competencies and academic skill. These brief SSIS SEL competency-focused interventions can facilitate Tier 2, Tier 3, and Special Education services for students with identified skill performance or acquisition deficits and need more intensive support to improve their social emotion skills.

    Participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with previous comprehensive SSIS SEL edition webinars on the new SEL assessments and Classwide Intervention Program (CIP) prior to this webinar on Brief Interventions.

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD

    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.

    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.
