    Descriptions of Sessions:

    9:00-10:30:  Am I Getting Burned Out? 

    Mardis Dunham, Ph.D., Murray State University

    Summary: Those working in mental health professions are at risk for getting burned out and

    becoming less effective in our roles. Attendees will complete a measure of normal psychosocial adjustment during the session which they will then score and interpret. Ways to avoid burn out

    will then be discussed.


    10:45-12:15:  SLD Identification utilizing RTI: How Scott County's Process Evolved

    Cristina Green, Ed.S., NCSP, Scott County Schools

    Summary: Scott County began piloting the use of RtI for SLD identification at a few select schools 3 years ago and expanded district wide this year at the elementary level. We learned a

    great deal through the process and have worked at length as a team to evaluate and improve

    our process as we go. We have had several districts reach out to us with questions, so it

    seemed like a wonderful time to have a work session at KAPS to gather together and

    collaborate. We’ll discuss how our process started and evolved into what we do in practice

    today, from start to finish including report writing and eligibility supporting evidence, and

    welcome an interactive session so we can learn and grow with each other to make sure we are

    all utilizing best practice.


    1:30-2:30:  Intro and Basics to Medicaid Billing


    Dr. Dan Florell


    Do the terms CPT code or ICD-10 mean anything to you? They will by the end of this training session. This session will provide an overview of the arcane world of Medicaid and insurance billing and will bring school psychologists up to speed on how they can also bill for services. 



    2:45-4:00:  Expanding your Counseling Toolbox


    Mallory Hart, Ed.S. and Linda Tyree, MA


    Summary: This session is for individuals wanting to integrate a wider array of activities into

    their individual and group counseling sessions. We will discuss various ways to determine

    therapeutic needs based on school and student data. Furthermore, attendees will be provided examples at tier I, II, and III levels for a comprehensive counseling program.
