The New PAR: Using A Data-Driven Approach to Make Smarter Reading Accommodation Recommendations

Sponsored By Don Johnston, Inc.
PARTICIPATE FREE OF CHARGE

Wednesday, November 12, 2014
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Central Standard Time

Research shows that, relying on subjective judgment, educators are no better than chance at making the right accommodation decisions. PAR (the Protocol for Accommodations in Reading) gave over 7,500 educators a roadmap to make evidence-based decisions.

We fielded a lot of PAR requests, and they were used to develop uPAR - a universal version delivered online. Scoring is automatic, data is centralized and it can be group-delivered.

Attend this webinar and see 1) how data is changing AT consideration, 2) why new state assessments will impact accommodations, and 3) why it’s necessary to put a process in place.

Denise DeCoste, Denise is an occupational therapist and a special educator with over 25 years of experience in the field of assistive technology (AT), leading low and high incidence AT teams in the Montgomery County Maryland Public Schools. She is also the co-author of the popular Protocol for Accommodations in Reading (PAR)
