This presentation covers how psychologists can be more effective team members, informing efficacious interventions for student patients. As a former Special Ed teacher, Dr. Resnik will discuss how Special Ed law and policy are implemented in public and private schools, as well as the dynamics behind how decisions get made. This talk will also address how to help teams translate clinical data into practical recommendations for school service plans and transition to post-secondary settings.

1. Design psychological testing reports and clinical data that can be used to advocate successfully for patients.
