Courses: Consultation & Practice Issues (PSYCB642001)
Class Number: 1400
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.
