The two webinars in this series provide updates on the responsibilities of school psychologists as a result of the recent US Supreme Court case, Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District (2017). Endrew clarifies the responsibilities in developing IEPs and provides a higher standard for fashioning an educational program that confers a free appropriate public education for students in special education. The case has important implications for school psychologists in conducting assessments, developing programming, and implementing progress-monitoring systems.
In the second webinar, What the Endrew F. ruling means for the school psychologists’ role in assessing, programming, and monitoring the progress of students with disabilities, we will explain the implications of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Endrew F. for (a) conducting assessments, (b) writing goals, (c) developing programming, and (d) monitoring progress of students in special education programs.Learning Objectives:
