Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn 12 pediatric chronic illnesses that school psychologists report are most commonly encountered in their daily practice.
  2. learn neuropsychoeducational sequelae of common pediatric chronic illnesses in order to assist in comprehensive evaluation planning.
  3. learn the utility of the RIOT (Review, Interview, Observation, Test) matrix when evaluating students with chronic illnesses.

Description

School psychologists are obligated to understand the psychoeducational implications of pediatric conditions in order to develop effective psychoeducational evaluation plans and establish special service eligibility under the category of Other Health Impairment (OHI). To assist school psychologists with evidence-based evaluation planning, literature regarding the top 12 pediatric chronic illnesses encountered by school psychologists was reviewed. This poster presents established neuro-psychoeducational deficits associated with these pediatric conditions that should be considered targets of evaluation.
