This webinar will explore the complexities of educational identification when a student appears to present with either an Autism Spectrum Disorder or a Significant Emotional Disability or both. Building on a previous presentation on how to approach this differential, this presentation will focus on case examples that help to illustrate the process and offer suggestions for educational teams who encounter this challenging identification issue.
Describe 3 evaluation strategies that can help inform this complex differentiation
List 3 things educators can do to promote home-school collaboration within the ed id process
Identify 3 ways that a student with an educational identification of ASD (without an identified SED) may differ in presentation from a student who qualifies for both ASD and SED
Explain how the term "adverse impact" is relevant in educational eligibility decisions, such as ASD, SED or both?
