Demystifying a Psychoeducational Report: What Student Support Staff Need To Know & Where To Find It: 12 April

Demystifying a Psychoeducational Report: What Student Support Staff Need To Know & Where To Find It: 12 April

Presenter: Dr Christina Limbird, Co-founder Linden Global Learning

Hosted by the ECIS Inclusive Education Special Interest Group

Do you often receive psychoeducational evaluations for students in your school that leave you wondering what to actually do with the information? Even worse, do some reports leave you feeling more confused about what the author is trying to say than before you even started reading it? While the assessment tools and writing styles of evaluators will always vary, this webinar will lead you through a “common sense” interpretation of many frequently-used assessments and their scores, as well as what information is essential to help focus your work with students. We will also consider the impact of diverse educational practices, acculturative stress, and multilingualism on students’ learning journeys.

During this workshop, participants will learn:
– The purpose and scope of psychoeducational reports.
– What various tests measure and how to interpret the scores.
– What to consider when reading a report about a student who has lived in multiple countries, learned multiple languages, and been exposed to different educational systems.
