This service is designed to provide technical assistance at no cost to LEAs/SSAs to facilitate the evaluation of students with disabilities. Technical assistance for evaluation may include responding to correspondence and telephone calls requesting information and visiting with evaluation specialists as needed.
Additionally, this service provides a variety of staff development activities designed to increase local district capacity to provide comprehensive and appropriate evaluations for students with special needs. These staff developments are included in the special education professional development calendar of events, on special flyers, and in brochures.
Leadership Evaluation Advisory Personnel
Leadership meetings for evaluation specialists will include both diagnosticians and psychologists. These meetings will focus on issues related to comprehensive and integrated evaluations of students (including issues related to the assessment of behavior). Each district, SSA, and Charter School will nominate one diagnostician and one psychologist to attend these meetings. Each meeting will be designed to share emerging information in the field of evaluation and encourage communication between LEAs. This leadership group will also consider and provide direction for future training opportunities in Region 10.
If you are the coordinator/director over an evaluation team in your LEA, please contact Keya Saleh for more information about the LEAP meetings.
