Working with Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Students in the Education System: Assessment to Intervention
Speaker: Dr. Todd Cunningham
The session will set a foundation for culturally linguistically diverse (CLD) children and adolescents by reviewing research regarding assessments and interventions. A new hypothesis drive assessment model to identify students learning profiles and lead to clinical conceptualization will then be presented.
Attendees will learn about specific methods for administration and interpretation of several informal tasks, checklists, and interview protocols designed to assess oral language, executive functioning, culture and acculturation, and social and emotional development. Attendees will also learn to communicate the results of an assessment to formulate diagnoses.
Once a learning profile has been developed from the assessment, attendees will learn about the link for the outcomes of the assessment to the empirical validate interventions that can be used with CLD children and adolescents. Tools such as ATSelect.org will be showcased to familiarize attendees with their value in generating recommendations.
