Writing Comprehensive Evaluation Reports When Using RTI for SLD (3/30/2022)

Speaking: Timothy J. Runge, PhD, NCSP, BCBA

This session will address how to write comprehensive Evaluation Reports for students referred for specific learning disabilities when using response to intervention methodologies. Participants will review how to operationalize and document contemporary approaches to responsiveness to intervention and level of performance specific to a student’s referred area of academic performance. Consideration and documentation of federally-required classroom observations and rule-out criteria (e.g., lack of instruction; other conditions; environmental / economic disadvantage; limited English proficiency) will also be reviewed. Case studies will be used to illustrated how to document all required elements of a comprehensive evaluation for specific learning disabilities.
