When prereferral interventions fall short of resolving a student's learning difficulties, a comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation may be necessary. This user-friendly book provides school-based practitioners with a clear framework for assessment and evidence-based intervention planning under the revised IDEA guidelines. A step-by-step flowchart and 12 detailed case studies assist the reader in recognizing the patterns that identify specific learning problems related to IQ, information processing, and classroom performance. Empirically supported treatments for each problem are described, and special education eligibility issues discussed. The authors also address practical issues involved in implementing their system in conjunction with response-to-intervention models.
