This workshop describes two methods of evaluation, Patterns of Strength and Weakness (PSW) and Response to Intervention (RTI). Case studies and other activities accompany this training to aid in understanding the differences and similarities in these two methods and when each should be used. The workshop also covers eligibility determination, and applying the two-prong approach for eligibility determination to the evaluation, no matter which method of evaluation is used.
