Patterns of Learning Disorders: Working Systematically from Assessment to Intervention
Wodrich, David L.; Schmitt, Ara J.
When pre-referral interventions fall short of resolving a student's learning difficulties, a comprehensive psycho educational evaluation may be necessary. This user-friendly book provides school-based practitioners with a clear framework for assessment and evidence-based intervention planning under the revised IDEA guidelines. A step-by-step flow chart and 12 detailed case studies assist the reader in recognizing the patterns that identify specific learning problems related to IQ, information processing, and classroom performance. Empirically supported treatments for each problem are described, and special education eligibility issues discussed. The authors also address practical issues involved in implementing their system in conjunction with Response to Intervention models. This book contains six chapters: (1) Overview of the System and Reasons for Assessing; (2) IQ-Related Conditions; (3) Information-Processing-Related Conditions; (4) Performance-Related Conditions; (5) How to Use the System through Case Examples; and (6) Suggestions for Implementing the Classification and Intervention Planning System.
