PSW Manual

The VC SELPA PSW Manual serves as guidance and information for school teams to help determine if a student is eligible for special education as a students with a specific learning disability. The information in the manual should be used in conjunction with all other special education assessment processes and data gathering to help IEP teams in determining needs and strengths of students. The manual should not be used in isolation or without consideration of individual student profiles. Professional judgement must always be used by all IEP team members when determining student needs and special education eligibility considerations.

The latest version of the PSW manual was updated in September of 2019.
