Engaging All Students: Lessons Learned from Incarcerated Youth Presented by Dr. David Diehl

This session will provide insight into street-socialized youth and why relationships can deflect their trajectory into the criminal justice system. Through his experience working in court and alternative schools, along with extensive research and interviews of the lived experiences of incarcerated males about their educational experience, he will share why increased awareness into the lives of street-socialized students from marginalized communities can improve student engagement and relationships, reduce the dropout rate, and impede future incarceration. Attendees will understand the significance of developing positive relationships with at-promise youth, and how these interactions can benefit them throughout their educational experience.

Afternoon Session: 12:30 PM - 3:30 PM

The Science of Dyslexia under PSW Presented by Janna Parker

Dyslexia is a hot topic in California these days, and school psychologists are well equipped to be involved in preventative efforts, assess for it when needed, and describe it in a way that parents and teachers understand. This training will focus on best practices for pre-intervention, assessment of dyslexia, eligibility criteria for SLD under PSW, report writing, and programming considerations for students with a dyslexic profile, through Science of Reading-Aligned practices. We will review case studies, discuss eligibility from the prevailing models, consider how we write our reports, and communicate our findings in IEP meetings. A PSW Case Study will be included. We will look at dyslexia through a new lens, that is Science of Reading aligned, and you will leave this workshop feeling more confident in your understanding of reading development, assessment, and intervention practice.

Continuing Education Credits:

Both courses meet the qualifications for 3 hours of continuing education credit for LEPS, LPCCS, LMFT, and LCSWS.

For nationally certified school psychologists, this course qualifies for 3 hours of continuing professional development under Provider Number 1025. The California Association of School Psychologists maintains responsibility for the program and its content.

Don't miss this opportunity to expand your expertise and connect with fellow professionals in the field. We look forward to seeing you on September 15th!
