Two workshops for school psychologists focus on psychoeducational assessment and development of individualized education programs (IEPs) for emotionally handicapped (EH) students. Each workshop includes a rationale statement, statements of purpose, scope, and prerequisite skills, learning activities, supplementary reports or case studies, and bibliography. The workshop on assessment, whose purpose is to present a best practice procedure for identification of EH students, addresses the topics of eligibility, problem identification, and data collection. Among purposes cited for the IEP workshop is the development of goals and objectives of a social and emotional nature, based on psychological evaluation data. Application activities for this workshop concentrate in particular on the development of statements of annual goals and short-term objectives. A pretest/posttest is provided. Appendices, which comprise the bulk of the document, consist of handouts to accompany each workshop. Handouts include family history and information forms, request for special education services, medical history inventory, a behavior questionnaire to be completed by teachers, summary descriptions of behavioral and personality assessment instruments, and suggested strategies for managing social, emotional, and behavioral problems which can be used as recommendations for implementing IEP objectives.
