have various training services available for your staff. Professional
development training can be scheduled with individual schools,
school districts, educational service areas or specialist groups
such as Occupational Therapists, or Assistive Technology personnel.
We also train staff from clinics working with struggling students.
3 kinds of training we can provide:
Individual, Group assessment and Trainer of Trainers
Assessment - one day training
We can train
your whole staff at the same time in a 6-hour seminar. This training
can be scheduled on an inservice day during the week or on Saturday,
if desired. The goal of this workshop is to prepare your staff
to assess students with visual-perceptual problems, and to intervene
using color. How to monitor and follow up with the student and
the parents is also covered. (If more than 40 staff members are
to be trained, a second trainer may be needed.)
Screening - two day training
We have a
group screening process which can be used to screen whole classrooms
and/or special groups of students. The teacher of these students
is trained in the process while working with the trainer. Usually
a specialist from the school will also work with the team. To
prepare for this, the trainer will meet with the team to outline
what will happen and how the process will be carried out.
will come in the day before to meet with the team in the afternoon
and prepare for the next day's screening. A follow-up meeting
will also be held at the end of the school day to sum up and plan
You can do
both of these, to be done at the same time, if you wish. Your
staff can be trained to do the individual assessment and then
a class can be screened using the group methods. (The group screening
needs to be scheduled when the students are in school.) A possible
schedule might be an individual assessment training on a Saturday
and the group assessment on the following Tuesday and Wednesday.
It is preferable
that your staff who will do group screening have some experience
testing students individually prior to working with the group.
Ideally it should include those members of your staff who have
assessment and intervention responsibilities (Title I, Reading
Coaches, Reading Specialists, Special Education staff, etc.) This
is not absolutely necessary, however. Please call us to discuss
how this would work.
of Trainers Seminar - two days
This is for
educators who have been using our assessment and have tested a
minimum of 15 students. We will share the experiences we have
had when assessing students. This is a second level training and
is intended to prepare your staff to train other educators in
your school or district in how to successfully use the See it
Right! materials. Materials included: Complete assessment manual
with one set of colors, 86-minute training tape, 12 minute Awareness
video, along with an excerpted version of each of these tapes
to use in your trainings, CD with Power Point training presentations,
as well as masters of all other handouts for your trainings.
costs are determined by the type of service you need. Our daily
consulting rate is $2,000. The materials needed by your staff
and students will be decided with the school staff. Additional
charges for travel (airfare or mileage) and hotel costs.
are given by Dorothy Henson-Parker, a Licensed Educational Psychologist,
and by Romy Sperling, a Resource Specialist for Los Angeles USD,
and /or consultants who are experienced and trained educators
who have used the See it Right!® assessment successfully with
students for years.
training and assessment materials for the six-hour seminar
are contained in the Short Form Assessment Kit. Each participant
will need a set of these materials for the training and for the
testing of students. In some cases, schools will have 1 set of
materials per 2 workshop participants. (Short Form Assessment
Kit is discounted to the schools for those being trained. Regular
cost $195, cost with workshop $160 per kit.)
for the Group Assessment training need to be discussed with the
individual agency personnel since the training is tailored to
the school's needs. These include a minimum of 6 Color Sets, individual
colors for those who will need them for use in the classroom,
and an assessment packet of materials for the team who will be
doing the screening.
