Full Session Description: Effective evaluations call for organized and useful reports that are understandable and helpful for parents and educators working with the child. School psychologists must also meet state and federal laws and regulations. Both objectives can be accomplished. This workshop will clarify characteristics of effective reports, review research on report writing, examine legal mandates, and discuss strategies for making reports useful and understandable. Report examples will be used to demonstrate effective writing practices and common pitfalls.
