"Huh?" Demystifying Psycho-Ed Reports and Making Solutions out of Them

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Most of the time when a student becomes too challenging, our schools hire a psychologist to conduct a psycho-ed assessment (that can cost a fortune) because we think labelling our problems should help. A lot of the time, these reports may not meaningfully help us highly trained teachers or the most experienced of administrators. At the same time, psycho-educational assessment reports are a gold mine of information if that data is communicated in accessible language or if the recommendations are credible. For example, I was once told that my 16-year-old student with focusing challenges should put sponges in his ears--ya, right. This session would like to demystify the psycho-ed and offer a practical, solution-focused model moving forward. Let's make psycho-eds valuable in your school.
