9/20/19 School Psych Cadre – Disproportionality Representation

Friday, September 20, 2019

School psychologists are asked to address a wide variety of student weaknesses. As student populations become more diverse, this becomes more challenging as assessments and the implementation of interventions must be culturally responsive. However, cultural responsiveness is a moving target and requires the consideration of many factors in order to reduce bias. This workshop will review the history of culturally responsive school services and the issue of disproportionality. It will then focus on how assessments and interventions can be implemented more effectively within a district.
