Current DBC MTSS Conferences for 2019-2020
Dayton Ohio MTSS-RTI Coming Up FAST
Big IDEAS in Implementing Multi-Tier Systems of Supports and Response to Intervention with Success
With Collaboration with the Montgomery County Education Service Center
Dayton Metro Library
December 11th and 12th, 2019
In collaboration with the Montgomery County Educational Service Center, Data-Based Conferences will be bringing our team of national experts to Dayton on Wednesday and Thursday, December 11th and 12th, 2019, to work with school leaders and practitioners to provide state-of-the-art information on best practices for reading and language arts instruction, behavior support, and assessment within the context of a Multi-Tier System of Support (MTSS) including Response to Intervention for learning disabilities identification.
Among the key topics will be the following:
BIG IDEAS AND PRACTICES ESSENTIAL FOR K-12 MTSS IMPLEMENTATION SUCCESS
Too many schools are confused about MTSS and RTI, seeing them as identical names for the same hooping jumping practices to "get students into special education." Learn key distinguishing features and practices vital to success from Drs. Mark R. Shinn and W. Alan Coulter.
TRAUMA-INFORMED, EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES IN MTSS
Knowledge of trauma impact is not enough unless it is paired with evidence-based practices that can address the social-emotional and educational impact of trauma. Learn about these practices from Dr. Clayton Cook.
WHAT WORKS--AND DOESN'T--IN DYSLEXIA AND OTHER READING DIFFICULTIES IDENTIFICATION AND TREATMENT
Ohio, like many other states, has passed dyslexia legislation that provides schools another opportunity to reduce the wide gap between reading science and identification and treatment of students with reading difficulties.Learn about what we know works--and doesn't--with one of the world's authorities, Dr. Jack Fletcher
TESTED STRATEGIES TO SUPPORT MTSS IMPLEMENTATION
Many lessons have been learned in 25 years that make high quality MTSS implementation a little easier. From teams and teaming, data-based decision making, and changing school culture, the difficult adoption process can be much easier. Learn about these strategies from Drs. Kim Gibbons and W. Alan Coulter
LAW AND LORE
Legal compliance is often cited as a barrier to MTSS implementation, whether in providing more intensive general education intervention, special education eligibility, 504 plans, behavior supports, and special education practices. Learn about state and national law and regulation from our nation's leading special education law authority, Dr. Perry Zirkel.
RESEARCH-BASED AND EXPLICIT READING INSTRUCTION
There is consensus in the research communities about "what works" to ensure students become successful readers, but there remains a large gap in practice. Learn about effective reading instruction across tiers and interventions from Dr. Nancy Marchand-Martella.

Our MTSS 6th Annual Conference in New Orleans
April 2nd and 3rd, 2020
New Orleans, Louisiana
We are working on fleshing out our content for our 6th New Orleans conference as we continue with our themes of bringing something new as well as something old to ensure we can meet the needs of early and advanced implementers.
This year's conference will include Dr. Jeff Sprague, Professor of Special Education and Director of the internationally recognized University of Oregon Institute on Violence and Destructive Behavior (IVDB).
Dr. Sprague's keynote will be entitled A Tale of Three Tiers: Lessons learned about Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports and What We Need to Know Next.
He also will be doing breakouts on Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Implementing and Managing Alternatives to Suspension.
Keep checking back or subscribe to our email mailing list.
We Are Returning to Columbus, Ohio April 28th and 29th, 2020
April 28th and 29th, 2020
Based on the success of last year's MTSS conference that was held at The Ohio State University Fawcett Center, we have been asked to return to support further local, state, and regional implementation efforts. As we begin to plan our content, be assured that we will be providing keynotes and breakouts on MTSS implementation that are research-based AND practical.
