Team PSI explains the intricacies of educational services to Pediatric Residents at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Grand Rounds.
During a recent two-day presentation at Grand Rounds, University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children Pediatric Residents attended a presentation on educational services in public, charter, and private schools. Because their future patients may indeed need educational services, this information could allow physicians to be more effective advocates for their patients in the areas of Special Education, School Health or School Counseling services.
During the first session, PSI’s Executive Director of Client Services, Dr. Colleen Lorber along with PSI’s Coordinator of Educational Specialists, Dr. Layla Nelson, provided the audience an overview of Special Education definitions, School Referral Flow Charts for a Parent Suspecting a Disability in their child, a description of 504 Plans vs. IEP Plans and general information from the Ohio Department of Education on disability qualifications and procedures.
During the second session, Colleen and Layla were joined by Meredith Bookwalter, Julie Goldyn and Karen McKelvey to answer questions on special education, school health services, and school counseling services.
