LSSPs


Our Behavior team is working with schools and districts to bring them LSSPs services. We have one LSSP on staff, locally available for contract services.

Our LSSPs conduct evaluations and reevaluations to determine continued and potential eligibility for special education services, academic and behavior intervention planning, and counseling as a related service. We assess for disabilities under IDEA's 13 categories (with the exception of Visual Impairment) including blindness, hearing impairment, deafness, deaf-blindness, and speech or language impairment.

Our evaluation measures include:

  1. Cognitive assessment
  2. Academic achievement
  3. Behavioral assessment (ADHD, executive functioning, Autism, and other psychological disorders)
  4. Adaptive abilities
  5. Records review
  6. Parent and teacher interviewing
  7. Direct observations.


We offer full evaluations and hourly testing services. When we accept a full evaluation we work with all stakeholders to access medical and school records, set up interviews, observations, and testing sessions. We conduct and write evaluations within 45 school days. We provide copies of evaluations to district contracts and parents by the end of the 45th day.

We review evaluation results with parents, in person, in person or by phone, prior to the eligibility determination meeting. We also attend eligibility determination meetings to review results and recommendations with the IEP team. Our evaluations are written for your district, whether it be embedded in a formal program or as a separate word document.

We provide hourly testing support, such as administering and scoring assessments and direct observations and data collection. This is offered to help alleviate the pressure of districts' assessment staff and assist them in meeting timelines.

We also conduct thorough functional behavioral assessments (FBA) and behavior intervention plans (BIP) for students with behavioral concerns. Our services range from completing an FBA and BIP, to attending meetings and training staff on the behavior intervention plan. In addition, we offer individual behavior consultation, Region 13 trainings, webinars, and staff in-services. We specialize in a range of topics including:

  1. Research based behavior interventions
  2. Working with students with psychological disorders
  3. Data collection
  4. Manifestation determination
  5. Social Emotional Learning
  6. Understanding cognitive strenghts and weaknesses.

We provide supervision services for LSSP trainees and interns. It includes weekly in-person support, access to Region 13 test materials and resources, and access to the supervisor in person or via email, phone, and text.
