    Despite the great need for proper assessments of multilingual individuals, the truth is that there are simply not enough properly trained multilingual examiners. When a multilingual examiner is unavailable, some examiners seek out the help of multilingual interpreters. However, asking a multilingual staff member down the hall is not enough. This presentation will address how to collaborate with an interpreter in order to make sure that your assessment results are accurate. We will cover both language and cultural factors important to proper assessment.

    With students returning to school via virtual, hybrid, and eventually face-to-face instruction, educators are facing an enormous challenge in identifying student need as well as providing evidenced-based interventions. It is more essential than ever to establish a Multi-Tiered System of Support to mitigate the multi-tiered levels of challenges experienced by all students, as well as to provide educators an effective framework for teaching and learning success. This MTSS webinar series will include 4 blocks of learning opportunities over the 2020-2021 school year. Each session is intended to help facilitate the development of a Multi-Tiered problem-solving model for student behaviour, as well as an implementation plan to increase fidelity.

    In Part 2 of this webinar series, Dr. Delis will provide guidelines for making clinical interpretations of the findings of the D-REF Adult. Topics discussed will include interpretative guidelines of:

    • The validity versus clinical scales of the D-REF Adult
    • Findings from clinical versus forensic evaluations
    • Self versus Collateral Form results
    • Findings from repeated evaluation

     

    Dr. Delis will also discuss the use of an optional feature of the D-REF Adult Score Report that provides a list of specific recommendations for interventions for EF problems targeted to each examinee’s profile of EF strengths and weaknesses. A case example will be provided to illustrate the different interpretive guidelines.

    Presenters: Patricia Ybarra and Nancy Castilleja

    At this session, participants will provide information that will enable participants to describe the differences between CELF Preschool-3 and PLS-5 and explain how clinicians can select the test that provides useful information about a child’s language skills. Using case studies, the presenter will describe differences in the type of data provided on each test and explain how differences in the format and content of the tests can contribute to score differences.
