Due to the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19 we will be posting free webinars during the months of April and May. These webinars will be covering a variety of topics such as Executive Function, Autism Assessment, and SLD and will be available on JackNaglieri.com until further notice. This gives us an opportunity to share and learn from each other while staying home and safe.
The goal of this presentation is to describe a comprehensive approach to understanding and assessing Executive Function (EF).
This session provides a straightforward way school psychologists can use the so called ‘third method’ for SLD eligibility determination to both classify and remediate specific learning disabilities.
Intelligence testing is a key part of any comprehensive assessment, yet we continue to use tests that are 100+ years old. Participants will learn about research which illustrates the limitations of traditional IQ and interpretation methods intended to make them better.
Drs. Naglieri, Feifer and Otero talk with students of Dr Waltman from Plymouth State University about assessment of cognitive processes as measured using the CAS2 and achievement as measured by the FAR, FAM and FAW. This conversation includes looking a cases presented by the students.
Presented by Jack Naglieri, Ph.D, Dina Brulles, Ph.D, and Kimberly Lansdowne, Ph.D
It is well known that gifted education should be much more inclusive. Recently researchers have estimated that more than 700,000 African-American, Hispanic, and Native American students in K-12 public school today could have been identified for gifted programs but were not. Why not? We will suggest that the identification process typically used puts too much emphasis on knowledge of the English language despite well meaning efforts to achieve more diversity. Even when a matrix of data is used, the language demands of some verbal and quantitative ability tests can block students with limited background knowledge and English language skills.
NYASP recently offered a webinar series with School psychologist, Jack A. Naglieri and master teacher, Kathleen Kryza. Three one-hour webinars forced on research-based strategies to support school psychologists, teachers, parents, and students in these trying times when so many things have changed. In addition, the sessions emphasized how we all can cope better if we use our Executive Functioning skills to figure out how to manage new demands such as learning in a virtual classroom, staying focused, and the importance of staying connected.
Sessions will be available for purchase in the upcoming weeks.
