MORNING SESSION – 9:00-11:30am
TOPIC: Supervision in School Psychology: Practical Tools for Professional Learning   

Many school psychologists will find themselves supervising trainees despite never having had formal training in supervision. This session will present tools and frameworks for supervisors at all experience levels to build strong working alliances with their supervisees; evaluate performance and provide difficult feedback; address supervisee problems of professional competence; and provide culturally responsive supervision. Participants will have opportunities to actively practice skills and to interact with professional colleagues, and will leave with resources to be used in future supervision practice.

Newman, NCSP, is an Assistant Professor of School Psychology in the Department of Human Services at the University of Cincinnati, having received his doctorate in school psychology at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Lunch 11:30-12:30

TOPIC: Writing: Evidenced Based Intervention and Assessment 

This presentation will provide an overview of evidence-based assessments and interventions for writing, the most neglected of the “three Rs” in terms of research and training, but which is an ever-increasing area of importance in state and national tests. As a result of attending this presentation, participants will: Learn about the foundations of writing, learn about standardized and curriculum-based approaches to writing assessment, learn about writing interventions for students in preschool through high school, gain hands-on experience with some of the assessment and intervention techniques described.
