Conducting Diversity Sensitive Disability Evaluations (Monolingual & Bilingual Evaluators in CPSE/CSE)

Blue Sea is hosting a Diversity Conference led by Dr. MariLuz Genao, and there is LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE! The aim of this professional development is to provide evaluators with an understanding of:

  1. NYS Regulations that discourage current standardized score-based disability evaluations, and
  2. The psychometric mismatch of current disability evaluation tools with the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) population and Socio-Economic-Staff (SES) variables.
  3. The second half of the day is devoted to training on the alternative field recommended practices for the CLD population to appropriately distinguish difference from disability with example CPSE and CSE disability evaluation reports. (*Further training will be needed to implement these practices and they will be provided via the EISN, please register in advance)
