Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Assessment in Students

Presented by Erin Caskey, PhD.

Tuesday, January 11, 2022

7:00 PM

Zoom

Assessment did not stop during the COVID-19 pandemic.  In fact, practitioners have faced increased referrals for issues such as ADHD and learning concerns.  However, it can be challenging to discern effects from the upheaval caused by the pandemic versus true learning and attentional disorders.  Therefore it is important to discuss strategies to most accurately assess students during this time of so many environmental stressors.  This presentation will address how the pandemic has affected the assessment of children and adolescents, particularly in regard to learning disorders and ADHD.

Dr. Erin Caskey is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Rush University Medical Center.  She conducts comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for children and adolescents in the Chicagoland area who present with a broad range of problems.

PLD/SE membership is required for CPDU credits.  Members will receive 1.5 CPDUs for the program.
