Dr. Rocchio is a licensed psychologist who has conducted hundreds of psychological and educational evaluations in school, mental health, and private clinic settings. It was during his training at Marshall University, where he earned an M.A. in clinical psychology, that he first became interested in psychological and educational testing. His formal education culminated in a Ph.D. in educational (school) psychology from the University of Pittsburgh, where his dissertation was on childhood stress and its impact on learning. Dr. Rocchio's professional interests include psychological and educational testing, fairness in testing, the history of psychology, learning differences, and intelligence. He currently provides consultation to schools and teaches graduate courses in psychology. He has two daughters and resides with his family in the Cleveland, Ohio, area. His book, "Get Smart About Tests: The Essential Parent and Teacher's Guide to Understanding Children's Educational and Psychological Testing," was a finalist in ForeWord Review's Book-Of-The-Year Awards.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Amy Maxwell, M.Ed. on February 2, 2011
Format: Paperback
Regular education teachers are required to read and know all of the elements written within each child's IEP. Although they read, many times they don't know what it all means. Dr. Rocchio defines and simplifies the terminology commonly found within IEP reports making it possible and much more probable for regular education teachers to tailor instruction and interactions to all the children in their classroom.
