Differentiating Intellectual Disabilities from "Slow Learners" and Specific Learning Disabilities (Dr. Schultz) - 32151
With the increased volume of referrals for students suspected as having a specific learning disability comes an increase in the number of students who may have an Intellectual Disability (ID) or pervasive weaknesses (i.e., "slow learner"). These disabilities have distinct characteristics as well as overlapping characteristics. This session will focus on best practices in identifying ID to rule out other conditions and improve diagnostic precision. Participants will be able to interpret the FSIQ and reconcile conflicting adaptive behavior scales. This session is aligned with the evaluation and reevaluation components of the TEA-required self-assessment and SPP Indicator 11.
