School Psych Mid-Meeting Updates
Out with the Old
Elementary only: If we are re-evaluating a kiddo for possible SLD in reading but they have not been in RtI because they've been in sped, we can use the RtI method for SLD identification if the sped teacher has been doing DIBELS or AimsWeb ongoing progress monitoring. So, you can treat that data just as you would if it had been collected by the RtI interventionist. Of course, it doesn't guarantee the child will qualify SLD, but it gives the child the same 2 chances to qualify in reading as a general education child has.
We now have Conners Early Childhood via MHS.
Remember, with MHS you can print
a protocol if you need to.
We have at least two families who are requesting acceleration of 4-year-olds. We do these when we are all off contract. The pay is $130. (minus taxes, etc.) for the basic WPPSI-IV subtests and scoring a BASC-3. Easy-peasy.
Two Re-eval Form Notes
When going through the re-eval form in Enrich and selecting areas to be evaluated, be sure not to select areas unless we are gathering new data in that area. A review of old data (school history, medical, etc.) is information we should consider at the re-eval meeting as we plan the re-eval. You can add all kinds of existing information and data into your re-eval report, just don't click the radio button and list it as a part of the new re-eval if it's existing information.
Review the consent form for re-evals (and initials) and be sure that everything you are going to test is listed, and nothing you're not going to test is listed. Those radio buttons are easy to miss, so please double-check what is on the consent form before the parent signs.
Elementary: Important RtI note
