POST 2 | Emotional Disturbance During a Global Pandemic: Legally Aligned Intervention, Assessment, and Identification Practices
Friday, April 23, 2021: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Schools aim to provide safe, responsive, effective, and legally compliant learning environments for students, but sometimes good intentions still result in disproportionate special education eligibility recommendation practices, particularly for students with significant social, emotional, and behavioral needs. Making matters more complex, schools face novel challenges as a result of the systematic changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. With a focus on the multifaceted nature of disparate practices and the impact of school closures, school psychologist Jessica Dirsmith and school attorney Rebecca Heaton Hall will discuss legally compliant and best practices in prevention, intervention, and assessment of students with ED. Practitioners will take away a clear method to align evaluations to assess all ED characteristics and criteria.
