Attendees should obtain a better understanding of why testing is helpful, i.e., how the information has practical value (in the short and long term) for the student, parents, teachers and tutors. Parents should obtain a clearer idea about: types of tests, who tests, when testing should be considered, and if/when it needs to be repeated.
Charles P. Roth, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist with a specialization in neuropsychological assessment.
Charles holds a B.A. in English Literature from St. Joseph's University, an MS in Information Science from Drexel University, and a M.A. and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology.
Charles' interest in assessment was generated by sorting out his own daughter's challenges related to learning. He was a registered psychologist at Children's Health Council in Palo Alto for 4 years, and worked as part of a multi-disciplinary assessment team. Charles was a lecturer in the M.A Counseling Psychology program at San Francisco State University for 7 years, specializing in law and ethics, child and adolescent development, and supervising students in public school settings.
Charles served as a custody evalulator for San Francisco Unified Family Court for 13 years, and continues to do co-parent counseling to help divorced parents make decisions regarding their children. He most often works with families who have special needs children. Charles, in 2007, joined the Bay School of San Francisco, and helped create their Learning Services Department. He was Director of that program for 6 years, and is now a neuropsychology consultant at Bay.
Charles has given presentations related to learning and attention problems previously for PEN, including at EdRev, and at the California Association of Independent Schools; San Francisco Unified Family Court; University of California, Berkeley and Santa Cruz; given in-service training to faculty in schools in San Francisco, and was the keynote speaker at a conference at Maplebrook School in New York State.
