“Thanks for an amazing course. I have taken a number of EL courses and this has by far been the best! I love that it also addressed the PSW model, wow!”

“Jenny’s online course on PSW and Dyslexia was just the right balance of background information and practical application. The resources and information provided have allowed me to feel more confident in my ability to design a comprehensive, and legally-defensible, dyslexia assessment using the PSW model.”

“I completed the beginner and intermediate Dehn’s PSW courses. The presentation format was user friendly and very informative. This is an excellent training program for psychologists working with all levels of Dehn’s model from beginning to advanced. I highly recommend this training program.”

basic psychological processes

The federal definition of Specific Learning Disability indicates that it is a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes.

But, what ARE the basic psychological processes?

Some states have their own lists of these processes but include interesting terms such as “conceptualization” and “association” without providing definitions.

Other states provide no direction.

That is where Basic Psychological Processes can help YOU!

u

I have been training school psychologists and school districts on the topic of learning disabilities for multiple years. During these trainings there are multiple questions about exactly what ARE the basic psychological processes and how do you best assess for them.

So, I dove in. I read the books about processing areas related to SLD. I took a certification course all about memory. I read some more. And then… I created some videos to share all of that information with other school psychologists.

what is Basic Psychological Processes?

Basic Psychological Processes is a series of eight modules that cover the different processes related to reading, math, and written language difficulties.

Once you have access to Basic Psychological Processes, you immediately have access to the eight modules:

N

Attention

N

Auditory & Phonological Processing

N

Fluid Reasoning

N

Language & Knowledge

N

Memory

N

Processing Speed

N

Sensory-Motor

N

Visual Processing

why should I access Basic Psychological Processes?

resources

Multiple videos, handouts and other resources for each module.

in-depth strategies

I help to answer what each process really means, what tools might assess them best and accommodations and strategies to support students who struggle in that area.

videos

Videos also discuss discrepant scores, your role versus the speech-language pathologist’s role, and how to explain these terms in a parent-friendly manner.

state-specific

For those school psychs in CA, I also align these general terms with the specific processing areas outlined in the state’s education code.

All participants who complete each of the modules can obtain 5 CEU hours for their NCSP and/or LEP (CA Only)

This course meets the qualifications for 5 hours of continuing education credit for LEPs, LPCCs, LMFTs, and LCSWs. This course also qualifies for 5 hours of continuing professional development for Nationally Certified School Psychologists, under provider number 1025. The California Association of School Psychologists maintains responsibility for the program and its content.
