MS084: Identification of an SLD Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses

Tuesday, February 18, 2014 10:00 AM–11:50 AM


This presentation will provide a summary of third method approaches to SLD identification, focusing on the PSW component. Recommendations will be made regarding the best means of determining whether data derived from a comprehensive evaluation of a student with learning difficulties supports a PSW consistent with SLD. Participants will learn how to analyze data to determine the presence of a PSW and how to interpret the PSW within the larger context of the case.
