Response to McGill and Busse, "When Theory Trumps Science: A Critique of the PSW Model for SLD Identification"
Christo, Catherine; D'Incau, Barbara J.; Ponzuric, Jenny
Contemporary School Psychology, v21 n1 p19-22 Mar 2017
The California Association of School Psychologists (CASP) responds to a critique of the Association's Position Paper: "Specific Learning Disabilities and Patterns of Strengths and Weaknesses" (2014, March. Available: by McGill and Busse. The CASP offers corrections to McGill and Busse's three critiques and clarifies the Association position that the assessment of students suspected of having a Specific Learning Disability involves a comprehensive evaluation that provides information regarding both environmental factors that include data on instruction and interventions as well as within-child factors such as response to intervention and the student's pattern of academic and specific cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
