I was told they can dial in by phone and listen

I see you answered this already, Thank you
Marie

Phone lines are also now full - the recording will include voice and slides.
Marie
45:43
If you have questions please put them here in the chat box
Marie
47:05
I will give examples when I take over presenting - we are talking about data from many sources. Great question.
Renee Savedge
48:47
During one of the screening/eval webinars for preschool students, I believe the presenters discussed screening tools that included such things as checklists or interviews. Could you provide names of those for potential use?
Marie
49:40
Great question - I will ask Dawn to talk about that at the end. We can also send links to those to registered attendees tomorrow
Marie
51:28
The accuracy of hearing screening depends n technology and many other factors. The links in the FAQ provide the articles with research
Shermayne Moore

Question about slide 16 - it says "formal assessments done virtually." Is this referring to a formal one-on-one eval (e.g., psychological, speech/language) or a benchmark assessment. In the cases of psych testing, they were not normed that way and body language and other nonverbals are critical in evals. I'd be concerned with reliability and validity of a formal eval given remotely
Marie
52:20
I will be addressing that when I take over presenting - good question
Shermayne Moore
52:28
Thank you so much

moved forward using information from Pt. C if it is current, with in the last four-six months, the team reviews and if there is clear information the documents a significant delay that indicates a disability we can move forward. We also consider when a child has a medical diagnosis and that indicates developmental delay would be likely. We must have a hearing screening. We talk with the parent about getting a screening done by their doctor, if a cost family reimbursed, and if it comes back with no concerns we can use that as a component. We then will set up a virtual meeting with the family to do a parent interview and hopefully watch the child interact with parent and play.
Marie
53:35
Thanks Jean - great approach to move things forward during this difficult time
Renee Savedge

we are completing Zoom observations during EI therapy sessions
Emily Nock
54:39
I would like those forms please. Thank you!
Marie Baroody
55:53
Thank you for that!
Early Childhood Host
57:13
I will send the observation forms with the recording of the webinar
David Lojkovic
57:41
thank you, the observation forms are much appreciated
Jean Swann
01:02:55
When I participate in transition conferences with EI I am discussing the need for a hearing screening. Often EI will help support the family with that.
Erika Daniel
01:05:28
The question as well during this time and into early fall is the lack of instruction item on criteria... especially for elementary students. Though is a consideration for all as some students did not fully participate in learning opportunities this past spring.
Early Childhood Host
01:07:02
Lacey- you would have to look at how the assessment was normed and how if can/cannot be administered - If if is not designed to be done virtually, then it is a non standard administration
Early Childhood Host
01:07:29
The ppt, recording, and the observation forms will be sent to everyone who registered
Early Childhood Host
01:10:55
Marin-good thought!

Have plexiglass germ shields been considered for face to face evaluations. Evaluations sometimes require being closer than six feet to complete.
Nell King
01:12:56
iF THE ASSESSMENT STRONGLY REVEALS THAT A CHILD MAY INDEED BE ELIGIBLE BUT THE OBSERVATION COULD NOT BE DONE, CAN WE MOVE TOWARDS TO ELIG? i HAVE QUITE A FEW STUDENTS ALREADY ASSESSED BUT NO OBSERVATION....
Early Childhood Host
01:13:12
A plexiglass shield and / or face shields are items that can be explored at the local level

Assessments were proposed and agreed to but were not able to be completed due to COVID-19 restrictions and parents did not agree to the extension of the timeline ... the team must go to eligibility to complete the process on time. Is the LEA responsible for the proposed and agreed to evolutions after the completion of the eligibility process?
Lourrie Duddridge
01:16:32
evaluations not evolutions :- )
Shermayne Moore
01:17:02
Could you please share the snswer to the ID question with all of us when you get the answer rather than one person? (For those of us who use VaIEP, the state form we use does say 2 SDs below the mean on the ID worksheet
Shermayne Moore
01:17:22
*answer
Erika Daniel
01:17:57
I also had a question about ruling out lack of instruction as many students did not participate in learning opportunities this past spring. this may also impact performance going into early fall.
Nancy Phillips
01:19:09
Marie may also want to look at the VaIEP forms too
Early Childhood Host
01:20:26
Marjory- was there parent permission to evaluate? if so and the observation was completed after- it could count provided it did help determine the need for specially designed instruction
Shermayne Moore
01:21:03
I get the wording in the regulations but the VaIEP state forms do not say this
Shermayne Moore
01:21:14
The VaIEP forms say 2 SDs
Rachel Waff
01:21:16
In relation to final outcomes for Indicator 7, if a student receives the same score for the initial and final rating, should the progress answer be marked as a no or can they be marked as yes if data shows progress (just not enough to give a higher score)?
Marie
01:22:20
If you do not have a score you can add descriptions in the list or describe area citing significant impairment in function
