Samuel Ortiz, Ph.D.

This workshop will present current research on language, cognitive, and academic development and implications for conducting psychoeducational evaluations that must generate valid data to support conclusions
and decisions regarding English learners. Topics include: a review of the evidence-base of common
approaches to evaluation of ELLs; the legacy of testing with bilinguals, understanding bias in testing;
issues regarding test score validity; presentation of an integrated framework for conducting practical,
defensible, and legally compliant evaluations, and use of the Culture-Language Interpretive Matrix as a
method for evaluating test score validity. The knowledge and skills gained will be useful to practitioners at
all levels and provides a solid base for engaging in evaluation of English learners that constitutes defensible and current best practices.

After providing a brief review of the incidence and consequences of traumatic stressors among our nation's
school aged youth, this workshop will provide and overview of mental health crisis intervention. Given that
when it comes to such a response "one size does not fit all," this session will review psychological triage
techniques and offer a range (from least to most restrictive) of mental health crisis interventions. Special
attention will be directed toward the relative unique suicide postvention crisis response.

Conference/Membership Deal
Participants will learn to recognize and challenge heteronormativity and sexism in schools, and how sexual
orientation and gender expression can influence school success or failure. Speakers will present their personal counter-narratives and groups will engage in exercises evaluating their personal beliefs, assumptions, and
self-positioning of societal privileges. Participants will learn strategies to respond to social inequalities perpetuated by schools to more effectively advocate for all youth.
The WISC-V represents a major revision with new content, six new subtests and a new test structure aligned
to five clinically and theoretically driven factor-based index scores. It can be administered in multiple formats (traditional and digital) and offers numerous ancillary scores for special clinical purposes. The presenter
of this intermediate workshop, a consultant to the primary developers of the WISC-V, offers an insider’s perspective on the revision process. In-depth didactic instruction and hands-on experience is used to convey the
critical aspects of the revision.
