603S02 - Learning Disability Evaluations During and After a Pandemic

‐ Jun 3, 2021 1:00pm

This presentation will address several challenges practitioners face when evaluating students after more than a year of disrupted instruction, further complicated by restrictions on typical assessment processes and settings. We will discuss changes in students, education, and psychological assessment practices. With this background, we will present an evidence-based assessment model to help guide selection of instruments and contextualize data interpretation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe student, educational, and testing factors affecting assessment precision and accuracy.
  • Discuss instrument selection and administration options.
  • Articulate an evidence-based assessment model for considering relevant data.
