Live Chat with Q&A: An explanation of capacity issues

Live Chat with Q&A: An explanation of capacity issues for ESSA members

This presentation will consider what capacity is, the test for establishing capacity in various contexts, the “red flags” to be aware of and how best to manage these red flags in daily practice.  Consideration will also be given to who is the appropriate person to make decisions when the requisite capacity cannot be established.
