PSW Manual

Ventura County SELPA PSW Model Procedural Manual (rev. 9/2018) 

The latest version of the PSW manual was updated in September of 2018. Below is a summary of the key changes:

  • Dr. Dehn added a fourteenth processing area, orthographic processing; therefore, all documents and narratives related to Dehn’s Processing Strengths and Weaknesses model now reflect that change.

  • The authors of Cross-Battery Assessment (Dual Discrepancy /Consistency method) made changes to some of the optional processing areas; therefore, all documents related to this model are reflective of these updates.

  • The PSW report templates were removed from the manual and are now available only on

  • The Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR) and the Feifer Assessment of Math (FAM) were added to the Academic Assessment Tools document found on pages 65-68.
