Thank you for your interest in the February 11, 2015 PLC topic of ASD Evaluations and Assessment Tools!
The learning objectives for the PLC were the practice of evaluating students for autism spectrum disorder eligibility. During this session, the presenters will review MARSE eligibility criteria for autism spectrum disorder eligibility. The current Ingham ISD ASD eligibility guideline document (2006) will be discussed. We will discuss differentiating ASD from other special education eligibilities. We will have a brief discussion about using an MTSS/RTI framework during ASD evals. A survey of assessments for ASD eligibility will be discussed as well as assessments for PLAAFP/goals. Finally, the practice of coming to a consensus with other evaluators will be discussed.
The PowerPoint for the presentation is provided below:
