    School psychologists play an important role in the IEP Team process helping to identify students’ strengths and challenges based upon their clinical observations and psychoeducational assessment tools. As technology of all sorts are now common in Maine classrooms, increasingly students with disabilities are able to use Assistive Technology (AT) to support their learning. Many students with disabilities also need their instructional materials in an accessible format (Accessible Educational Materials – AEM).
    In this presentation, designed for school psychologists, participants learn about the common forms of AT used in schools and well as the how AEM is important to students with disabilities.
    Topics to be discuss include:

    • IEP requirements for AT and AEM
    • How to school psychologist can use their assessment data to inform the IEP Team
    • Where to find lots of resources

    Mary MacLennan, President, Maine Association of School Psychologists will serve as the host for this webinar.

    Dr. Joan Struzziero returns to MASP to present Ethics: A Real World Approach to Everyday ProblemsA practical and humorous approach based on a series of real-life vignettes that have been encountered by school psychologists will be used to untangle conflicting ethical demands and mandates. Using APA and NASP ethics codes, attendees will be asked to thoughtfully explore feasible problem-solving approaches to most effectively and efficiently determine optimal, pragmatic courses of action. This workshop will provide 3 CE credits.  

    Following the Ethics workshop there will be a brief MASP Annual Meeting and then a delicious lunch. After lunch  Dr. Frank McCabe, Past President of MASP, will present Overview and Framework for Building and Conducting Team-Based Threat Assessments.

Key aspects of this model will be reviewed. This workshop will provide 2.5 CE credits.
