The Increase of Regular Teacher Participation during Multidisciplinary Team Meetings Using the School Psychologist as Facilitator.
The goal of this project was to increase regular teacher attendance and active participation during multidisciplinary team (MDT) conferences held to ensure appropriate decisions regarding eligibility, placement, and programming of special needs students. The school psychologist, as a member of the team in the target school in Dade County, Florida, met with each regular teacher to review the teacher's role in the MDT process and to share information regarding the referring problem, psychoeducational findings, perceived eligiblity and goals. In addition, the MDT agenda was reviewed and discussed in light of teacher contribution to the process. Observational data gathered from subsequent MDT meetings showed that the participating teachers then attended MDT meetings, verbalized assessment information, and verbalized recommendations more frequently.
