Telepsychological Assessment

Meeting and assessing the needs of all learners in an online environment can be challenging, particularly for students who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, or visually impaired (D/HH or B/VI).

This module is designed to provide school psychologists and district and building leaders with what they need to build comfort and confidence in virtually assessing all learners, particularly those who are D/HH and B/VI.

This module is brought to you by The Outreach Center for Deafness and Blindness at OCALI in partnership with the Ohio Department of Education, State Support Team 15 serving Ross, Pike, Scioto and Lawrence Counties, and the Statewide Services at both, the Ohio State School for the Blind and the Ohio School for the Deaf.

  • List key considerations for appropriate practices for providing telepsychological assessments.
  • Identify practical solutions to address barriers when assessing learners who are D/HH and B/VI via telepsychology.
  • Describe how to maintain test security and ensure data integrity when testing via telepsychology.
