Ethics and Cultural Diversity Training for LSSP's

This session will address ethical responsibilities of LSSP's. Resources will be presented and utilized to take a problem-solving approach to resolving ethical and cultural dilemmas. 

PRESENTER: Ashley Arnold, M.A.  LSSP, NCSP

Title: Understanding the Emotional Disturbance Eligibility

Course Description: The federal definition of Emotional Disturbance has changed little since its inception in the 1970s. However, this disability category is perhaps the most subjective and hardest for school psychologists to understand. This interactive session will review the federal definition of Emotional Disturbance and associated characteristics commonly seen with each of the five criteria. The workshop will also explore the differences between Emotional Disturbance and Social Maladjustment and provide school psychologists with tools to help distinguish the two. A brief mention of cultural considerations will be discussed. Finally, participants will review some court cases and explore legal precedents for Emotional Disturbance.

Title: Practical Applications of Professional Ethics, Council’s Rules, and Professional Responsibility in the School Setting

Course Description: In this workshop, participants will discuss common ethical dilemmas in the school setting faced by the LSSPs. Participants will review various sources such as FERPA, NASP Ethical Standards, TSBEP Board Rules, and IDEA to determine the appropriate course of action. The workshop is interactive and participants are encouraged to ask questions.
