CSHA member and presenter, Toya Wyatt, presented a very popular session at the 2019 CSHA Convention which reviewed the Larry P vs. Riles (1979) ruling regarding the assessment of African American students.
Here is Wyatt’s session abstract from our 2019 Program.
“This presentation will review the Larry P. v. Riles (1979) ruling and previous CSHA position guidelines regarding the assessment of African American students. Questions and misconceptions about this ruling, guidelines and relevant test bias issues will be addressed along with the review of a sample child case study. Participants are encouraged to bring standardized language tests for reference. The California Association of School Psychologists’ (CASP) recent Larry P. position statement will also be discussed.“
