PA Promotes Best Practices in School Psychology: Pediatric TBI-Advanced Assessment and Intervention

Uploaded: December 6, 2011 |  0 Comments  | 

This workshop will provide contemporary information with respect to advanced assessment strategies for school psychologists and other school-based professionals who work with students who have sustained a brain injury. This day long workshop will be devoted to advancing a neuropsychological assessment perspective for students following a brain injury. A specific focus will be placed on a construct-based approach to assessment in the school setting that can target underlying brain functions that can be disrupted following a brain injury. Specific suggestions for associated measurement strategies will be provided. The workshop will conclude with an overview of specific classroom-based intervention strategies that adhere to evidence-based or best practices models, and a discussion of associated factors pertaining to serving children and adolescents in the school setting following a brain injury (e.g., developmental surveillance). Additionally, several case studies will be provided that will highlight the importance of linking assessment results to treatment strategies. Handouts include:

1) Advanced Assessment and Intervention Strategies of Students with TBI powerpoint
2) Scenarios handout
