  • What if… you were able to get the help, support, and knowledge to utilize the PSW Model with fidelity and confidence?
  • What if… you were able to keep up to date with software updates and tips?
  • What if… you could get your PSW-related questions answered?

Well… you can!

During my in-person trainings, school psychologists often state that everything makes sense… when I am standing there.

But, then I leave and someone forgets a step. I leave and someone has a question that they didn’t think of when I was there.

Some school psychologists wonder when I might be back for a follow-up training.

I have been training on the PSW model for about as long as I have been using the model myself. When I was first learning PSW, I had a million questions. How do you do this? When do you do that? Am I doing this correctly?

I struggled when new versions of software programs came out. I remember watching videos on my iPad while using the software program on my computer. I would listen to the video, try it on my own, and then rewatch the video to make sure I was doing it right.

During initial and follow-up trainings, I realized that there were questions that were asked again and again. I had those same questions. How did I solve this problem? I dove in 100% into PSW. I took the certification programs. I read the books. I watched the videos.

The best way to know you understand something is to teach it to someone else. I have done that. Over and over again. What have I learned? The how of the steps and the programs is important. But, the real learning lies in the “why”.

 

PSW Monthly helps to answer the “why”.

I work with school psychologists individually at a cost per hour. I also can provide follow-up trainings to districts. Both of those can have a financial cost and may or may not meet your immediate needs with the student you are working with. I have spent the hours in the trainings and certification programs so that you can benefit from that knowledge, saving you time and money.

psw leaders

 PSW Leaders is available on-demand.

Psychologists can sign up at any time and will receive the information over a 5-week period of time. This allows for participants to enter the leadership group at their convenience and at a time most beneficial for their school districts.

PSW Leaders is intended to support school districts in building strong internal capacity surrounding the Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses (PSW) Model. I know it would be wonderful to have 1-3 school psychologists in your school district to have increased capacity to:

  • Assist newly hired school psychologists to understand the why, what and how behind PSW.
  • Provide training, as needed, to other IEP team members regarding the PSW model.
  • Support beginning psychologists with the PSW process.
  • Provide leadership and support for more complex assessments.

Many districts want to ensure that their new hires are able to get up and running with regard to utilizing the PSW approach, assessing students comprehensively and writing legally defensible reports. For many districts, there is a need to improve their internal capacity for this type of training and ongoing consultation.

PSW Leaders offers 5 modules, released weekly

The 5 modules will cover:

N

Module 1

provides an overview of the PSW Leader Training Guide and self-reflection documents to assist you in determining your strengths and areas of need.

N

Module 2

provides you with a Sample Training Plan and access to PPTs that can be used during initial trainings for new hires.

N

Module 3

discusses ongoing training topics to consider with access to handouts that can be used during those trainings.

N

Module 4

will discuss ideas for ongoing fidelity checks and methods for differentiating training for your teams.

N

Module 5

covers training for other IEP team members and provides you with sample PPTs and handouts that can be used for those trainings.

Your PSW Leader will have access to:

specialized content

related to the Dehn PSW Model OR the Dual Discrepancy/Consistency Approach (aka Cross-Battery).

5 weeks of content

that will be available one week at a time. Previous content can be replayed and reviewed at the psychologist’s convenience. Sessions will be focused on the initial and ongoing training of your psychologists surrounding PSW.

office hours

with me to respond to questions to assist the leader in feeling more secure and confident in their skills.

membership feedback

“Jenny’s PSW leadership training has helped increase my competence in using the PSW approach for identifying SLD. and this, in turn, has helped me embrace being a leader (as in her “trainer of trainers” approach) in the PSW approach in my own district along with two other school psychologists. Even though I have only been learning and practicing the PSW approach for the last three years (as part of the pilot group in my district), I feel well-grounded in my understanding of the approach and am always inspired to continue to learn and grow, thanks to Jenny’s leadership and availability as a trainer.

Jenny is professional, knowledgeable, and resourceful. I have appreciated her expertise, her wisdom, and her example of self-learning through various book clubs she leads and certification courses she participates in. I recommend PSW leadership training courses with Jenny to all psychologists, both new and veteran, who will be inspired leaders of helping meet students’ needs even better.”

The cost for previous cohorts was $349 for access to me six times in a group format. With the self-paced and on-demand option for PSW Leaders, psychologists have more frequent access to me as well as a plethora of content and resources. Instead of having your psychologist spend hours and hours creating PPTs, handouts and training timelines, these are all provided to the psychologist, saving them valuable time.

The cost of access to PSW Leaders is $200 (a one-time cost) plus the cost of access to PSW Monthly.

Since PSW Monthly is a monthly membership at $23/month, leaders need access to PSW monthly for a minimum of two months (for a total cost of $246 minimally). Many leaders decide to have ongoing access to PSW Monthly for 12 months to ensure they have access to new content released each month. The decision is up to the leader and the district. Please contact me HERE for specific price quotes should the district be financially supporting PSW Leaders.
