Hi, My name is Suzi and I am a 2nd year school psych. I was listening to the intervention discussion and recall something being said about the school psych being reluctant and maybe even refusing to assess a student who has not been provided any or maybe not proper interventions.
Neither my 1st year district nor my intern district used this strategy and therefore had an influx of students being assessed and often eligible for sped services. The district I will be working with this coming year has 18% of their students in special education which seems very high to me. How can one go about addressing the need of interventions with the team? I would assume I would need to consult with the sped department first at the district level to see if their legal teams allows this.???
