Disproportionality in Special Education: Implications & Interventions

Disproportionality is defined by the State of NJ as, the over representation of specific racial/ethnic groups in special education. Disproportionality adversely affects minority and low income children in special education the most; specifically in the areas of social/emotional and academic outcomes. This workshop will focus on defining the problem, outlining the causes, and identifying interventions available to mental health professionals. Therapists and child advocates working with students and families regarding school related concerns will benefit from learning how disproportionality affects your clients and what our roles can be regarding education and advocacy.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
