Response to Interventions: A Paradigm for Diagnosing AD/HD and Learning Disabilities - Dan Reschly, Ph.D. (2 Tapes or CDs)
AD/HD and SLD are behavioral syndromes that do not have unequivocal biological markers applicable to the vast majority of cases. Many of the symptoms associated with both syndromes associated with both syndromes occur in many children and adults for reasons other than a diagnosable disorder. Persistence of symptoms despite the implementation of normally effective interventions, strengthens the diagnostic inference of a disorder such as AD/HD or SLD. Moreover, implementation of strong interventions prior to diagnosis has the added benefit of improving environments for target children/adults and their peers. Response to intervention procedures, principles and decision making are emphasized in this presentation.
