Controversies in the Treatment of Child & Adolescent Disorders:

School evaluation personnel and practitioners are often tasked with treating students who have disorders that may or may not fall under an educational eligibility under TEA guidelines. Some of these students may qualify for 504s, and others may not qualify for services yet teachers and related service personnel want to be knowledgeable of these students and the diagnoses they carry so they can identify and plan effective interventions and treatments while being cautious not to use unsupported and/or dangerous treatments that are sometimes prescribed for students with these disorders.

Participants: Evaluation personnel, administrators, teachers, and related service personnel. 

Length: 1 Day (Day 3 out of 3): May 31, 2022
