Overview

Strong Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills and a sense of resiliency can help students be more successful in school and endure tough times, but how can you easily identify and assess which students need more help in developing these skills? In part 2 of this 4-part series, join Paul LeBuffe as he goes in depth about the need to assess SEL skills, stressing formative assessment. He'll explain why children who have strong social and emotional skills perform better in school and provide an understanding of what to look for in any assessment to get clues about the resilience of a child. Paul will also introduce you to a 72-item SEL assessment - The Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA) - and a universal screener, DESSA-Mini. He will also review how to interpret the assessment results. NOTE: While this webinar may be viewed as a stand-alone webinar, additional helpful information may be found in the 3 related webinars: Introduction to the "Whole Child" Initiative and Social Emotional Learning, Promoting Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Skills: Helping Your Students Succeed, and School Wide Approaches to Social and Emotional Learning (SEL).
