Federal Law (IDEA) clearly state that a variety of evaluation methods are required for Specific Learning Disability (SLD) eligibility determination — but there is a need for clearly articulated and workable methods. This workshop presents the Discrepancy/Consistency model for SLD determination. This approach is consistent with IDEA and integrates RTI and assessment of basic psychological processes. Strengths and weaknesses of all the commonly used ability tests and RTI as they relate to SLD determination will be provided. Case studies and research evidence regarding RTI and evaluation of basic psychological processes will be presented. In addition, I will provide a discussion of how to use the discrepancy/consistency model for SLD eligibility determination and how to select research based cognitive interventions based on a child's pattern of cognitive and academic strengths and weaknesses.
