  • Teacher mental health, school climate, inclusive education and student
           learning: A review.
    • Abstract: Teachers are in a profession with high demands as they work to meet the diverse learning needs of their students. Consequently, many teachers experience high levels of stress contributing to burnout, and unfortunately, many leave the profession. Teacher mental health may contribute to the resilience of teachers who choose to stay in the profession. Positive school climate also has the potential to contribute to teacher mental health and to provide an optimal environment to support student learning and growth. Knowledge of school climate and factors relating to teacher well-being are critical to allow for interventions to best support teachers and students in school settings. Additionally, there is a growing trend toward inclusive education practices that influences teacher well-being, student outcomes, and parent experiences. The aim of this review paper is to provide an overview of existing literature relating to teacher well-being and school climate factors in relation to student learning. Furthermore, this paper will extend findings from existing literature to provide directions for future research and applied educational practices.

  • Assessing the quality of the OPQ’s Guidelines for the Evaluation of
           Dyslexia in Children using the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and
           Evaluation (AGREE) II: A brief report.
    • Abstract: Dyslexia is a complex neurologically based learning disorder requiring the skillful intervention of a licensed psychologist for assessment, diagnosis, and intervention. As for any complex activity that may involve risks for the patient, there is value in having guidelines to inform practitioners about the best possible procedures when offering services to individuals with this condition. Practice guidelines are indeed a useful resource for mental health professionals but only to the degree that they are developed with the most rigorous standards. The Order of Psychologists of Quebec published the Guidelines for the Evaluation of Dyslexia in Children (Ordre des psychologues du Quebec, 2014) to provide guidance for psychologists in the assessment of dyslexia. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the quality of this guideline using the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation II guideline evaluation instrument (AGREE, 2009). Results show that this guideline was developed with important methodological flaws. Suggested improvements in the guideline development methodology using the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation II approach are discussed.

  • The messiness of LD identification: Contributions of diagnostic criteria
           and clinical judgment.
    • Abstract: To make a diagnosis, clinicians rely on both diagnostic criteria and clinical reasoning. In the case of learning disabilities (LDs), reliance on the latter (clinical reasoning) is likely to be heightened, given the current absence of a consistent LD diagnostic approach or definition. This study investigated the agreement between diagnostic decisions of reading LD (RLD) made by clinicians and those produced from strict adherence to 3 commonly employed diagnostic models (i.e., low achievement, ability-achievement discrepancy, processing strengths and weakness). Using a clinical sample of 313 elementary-aged children, the level of agreement between clinician and models was determined using kappa. The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (4th ed.: Canadian; WISC-IVCDN; Wechsler, 2003) and the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (3rd ed.: Canadian; WIAT-IIICDN; Wechsler, 2010) were used in the comparisons. Overall, the results indicate varying levels of agreement between: (a) clinician and model identification of reading disabilities, and (b) model-model agreement. The strongest agreement was between the clinician and low achievement model (LAM)—the model with the broadest LD definition. Clinicians should carefully consider the rationale for their diagnostic approach and be mindful of additional factors influencing their clinical judgment.

  • Learning disabilities in Canada: Definitions and accommodations.
    • Abstract: Prevalence rates of learning disabilities (LD) are inconsistent and poorly measured in Canada. Moreover, the definition of LD varies according to province and territory. A lack of a consistently applied definition of LD in Canada has implications for accurate prevalence rates, delivery of services, and allocation of resources. This review of government policies examines the similarities and differences concerning the definition of LD and the accompanying exam accommodations that are permitted in each province and territory. Results indicate that there exists much variability in provincial attitudes and approaches toward assessment, identification, and accommodation of students with LD. More importantly, most accommodations are not empirically supported, and more evidence is required to inform the use of extended time, readers, scribes, and technological aids, among others. Consequently, evaluating Canadian practices across provinces and territories with the goal of establishing a consistent definition of LD across Canada has implications for identification and accommodation of students with LD. Potential social benefits of a common Canadian definition of LD and better evidence-based practices, as well as directions for future research and revision of government policy are discussed.

  • Learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics: Supporting
           students with learning disabilities.
    • Abstract: Despite their intellectual potential, students with learning disabilities (LDs) face enormous challenges in science. Drawing on the literature from special, inclusive, and science education, this paper illuminates the promises and challenges of supporting students with LDs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. In light of the insights from research in these diverse fields, this work offers a comprehensive framework to understand and address the unique needs of students with LDs in STEM learning. This multidimensional analysis provides an overview of the contemporary discourses on STEM education, presents the continuing controversies surrounding the conceptualization of LDs, and discusses the barriers to the inclusion of students with LDs in science classrooms. Because difficulties in cognitive processing are thought to underlie LDs, this paper particularly focuses on the cognitive impediments to the achievement of students with LDs in problem-based STEM learning tasks and shares effective interventions to support these students’ cognitive development.

  • Bilingualism in children with autism spectrum disorder: Making evidence
           based recommendations.
    • Abstract: Many professionals working with bilingual families of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are concerned that the bilingual language context may lead to further language learning difficulties. As a result, it is often recommended that children with ASD be raised as monolingual speakers. The purpose of this article is to review the research on (a) bilingualism in neurotypical children and in children with development disabilities and language disorders, (b) the language development of bilingual children with ASD, and (c) the implications of recommending that these children be brought up as monolinguals when they live in bilingual contexts. Based on current evidence, children with ASD can become bilingual, and bilingualism does not lead to further language delays. Furthermore, research has shown detrimental effects for both the child and their family when children with ASD from bilingual contexts are raised as monolinguals. Current evidence therefore supports the recommendation that children with ASD from bilingual contexts be raised bilingually. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • The roots of critical thinking: Selective learning strategies in childhood
           and their implications.
    • Abstract: Long before formal education begins, young children learn from other people and from written and electronic media. Yet, with any second-hand information source, there is a danger of being misled by inaccurate claims. Far from being universally gullible, toddlers and preschool-age children possess both strengths and weaknesses in source evaluation. This paper summarizes research on children’s selective learning, or propensity to choose whether or not to accept information from different sources. To disseminate knowledge on these early abilities beyond cognitive-developmental researchers and to stimulate further research and the development of interventions, this review covers several areas including children’s understanding of knowledge, misleading information, their social biases and their learning from printed sources and media, as well as areas of ongoing research and future directions.

  • Universal principles of learning require unique applications for gifted
    • Abstract: The question of whether gifted students learn differently from other students has long plagued the psychology and education communities. On the one hand, the field of gifted education has promoted special programs that capitalize on gifted children’s individual abilities and needs. At the same time, evidence from rigorous studies has supported the notion that gifted children, like their age peers, learn optimally in classrooms that apply proven psychological principles. Are gifted students unique, or not' In this commentary, we rely on two versions of recent publications on teaching and learning to make the case that gifted students may be simultaneously unique from—and the same as—typical students. Gifted students are the same as other students in that their learning hinges on general psychological learning principles. However, to be effective, the application of those principles may be different for gifted students than for their classmates. We use four examples of the varied ways in which psychology promotes the application of principles based on the needs of special groups of learners.

  • The regulation of achievements emotions: Implications for research and
    • Abstract: This article offers a critical review of several influential emotion theories and emotion regulation models in terms of their utility for explaining how, when, and why students regulate their achievement emotions. Based on this review, we propose a novel framework for the regulation of achievement emotions. This framework is based on the premise that student learning and achievement is influenced by both achievement emotions and efforts to regulate these emotions. The framework further proposes that emotion regulation decisions, namely, the identification, selection, and implementation of regulatory strategies, are shaped by 5 antecedent factors: emotion-outcome expectancies, motives for emotion regulation, implicit beliefs about emotions, emotion regulation self-efficacy, and emotion regulation aptitude. The theoretical and practical implications of this framework are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Clinical psychology training in Canada and expectations for mobility: Is
           it time for change'
    • Abstract: The purpose of this brief opinion piece is to start a conversation regarding the expectation for mobility, or relocation, in clinical psychology training in Canada. Expectations for mobility seem to have emerged from a combination of fears about academic inbreeding, structural training issues, and the assumption of American norms around going away to college. However, there is no data to indicate that these expectations are appropriate in our unique Canadian context. The potential benefits of mobility need to be weighed against the ensuing impacts it has on student well-being, as well as on enabling diversity within our training programs, and as a result, within our profession. Discussion of potential obstacles, ways forward, and the need for future research are also reviewed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Furthering the discussion on a physician-assisted dying right for the
           mentally ill: Commentary on Karesa and McBride (2016).
    • Abstract: In June 2016, Canada joined the handful of nations that have legalized physician-assisted dying (PAD). Yet, with legislation restricting PAD to the terminally ill, many have been left contending for the right to PAD in cases of debilitating chronic illness, including, but not limited to, severe mental illness. This commentary serves to evaluate and continue the discussion of Canadian PAD for the mentally ill as introduced by Karesa and McBride (2016), present and compare the results of our own research, and promote ongoing discourse on this subject. Karesa and McBride (2016) surveyed psychologists regarding a prospective role for their profession in the PAD process, as well as their attitudes toward PAD. We evaluate their methodology and findings, suggesting manners in which future investigations of psychologists’ attitudes toward PAD can be improved. Implementing some of these suggestions, our own study assessed n = 201 Canadian undergraduates’ attitudes toward PAD for 2 mental illnesses (schizophrenia, depression) as compared with PAD for physical illness (multiple sclerosis [MS]). In a repeated measures design, participants read vignettes depicting individuals who suffer grievously from 1 of MS, schizophrenia, or depression. In accordance with the primary hypotheses, schizophrenia and depression received lower levels of support for PAD, and were perceived as involving less suffering, rationality, and futility of treatment compared to MS. Our study provides further insight into the ways in which people differentiate physical and mental illnesses, and our discussion adds a Canadian perspective to a pressing subject that, to date, has not been thoroughly investigated.
