Courses: Consultation & Practice Issues (PSYCB642001)

Fall 2009

Class Number: 1467
The third and final course in the CDPP psychological assessment
sequence, this course prepares students for the professional practice
of clinical developmental and school psychology. The course deals
with models of special education; consultation approaches in school
psychology; categories of exceptionality; multicultural issues in the
delivery of school psychology services; principles of educational
psychology; the structure and organization of schools; and assessment
of preschoolers. The class includes a weekly "Diagnostic and
Personality Assessment Lab". While taking this course, and
continuing through the second semester, each student works in an
assessment practicum in a school, clinic, or pupil service agency. In
small weekly lab groups, which are held throughout the academic year,
students and instructors discuss ongoing cases and consider such
clinical issues as test selection, scoring, report writing, working
with parents, consultation, and programming recommendations.
