UPCOMING 2018-19 CONFERENCES

MTSS for Prevention--

RTI for Accurate Disability Identification

Educational Service Center  Region 20 

San Antonio, TX

January 10th and 11th, 2019

The state of Texas remains under pressure from a variety of audiences, including the TEA Corrective Action Plan and dyslexia advocacy groups to better serve at risk  students or students with disabilities AND better prepare all students for post-secondary and work place environments.

Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS), also known as Response to Intervention (RTI), when implemented with fidelity, provides schools an opportunity to address many of these pressures.

In collaboration with Educational Service Center 20 (ESC-20) Data-Based Conferences is bringing 2-days of professional development by nationally recognized presenters to San Antonio, Texas. Our presenters meld a strong research base with careful attention to practicality, striving to bring high quality training to practitioners at the lowest possible cost. Attendance is $300.

With careful attention to Child Find Issues that are customized for Texas' Corrective Action Plan, attendees will learn:

  • Behavior support strategies to improve school climate
  • Legal issues in special education eligibility
  • Research-based reading/language arts to improve outcomes across ALL Tiers, including special education
  • Simple and scientifically sound basic skills screening for early intervention and to determine when disability may be suspected
  • Progress monitoring across Tiers and programs
  • Special education assessment practices for specific learning disabilities (SLD), writing more time and cost efficient IEP goals to ensure scientifically sound progress monitoring and revision of IEPs when appropriate
  • Secondary MTSS

Attendance is LIMITED TO 190

MTSS and Diversity:

Trauma-Informed, Evidence-Based Practices for One and All!

With Collaboration with The Ohio State University School Psychology Program

March 7th and 8th, 2019

The Fawcett Center
2400 Olentangy River Rd.,
Columbus, OH 43210

Data-Based Conferences is collaborating with The Ohio State University School Psychology Program to bring state-of-the art, research-based and practical strategies to promote and improve your MTSS and RTI implementation.

Through a combination of whole group keynotes and smaller group break outs that participants select, our nationally recognized presenters will offer a range of professional development experiences for schools that are very experienced to just getting started. Among the key topics will be the following:

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.

MTSS IN DIVERSE COMMUNITIES FROM TEAMS TO INTERVENTIONS FOR AT RISK MALES OF COLOR

In too many MTSS professional development activities,  the importance of socio-economic, cultural, and linguistic  diversity gets left behind or left out. In particular, preventive efforts to reduce risk for males of color are neglected. We believe that these topics need explicit attention. Learn about issues of diversity, including teams and teaming, and interventions for high risk males from Drs. Alisia Moutrey and Ramel Smith.

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 these practices from our nation's leading special education law authority, Dr. Perry Zirkel.

These nationally recognized experts and other members of our group will bring practices that are scientifically sound, yet practical to support your implementation efforts, including:

  • Behavior support strategies to improve school climate
  • Legal issues in special education eligibility
  • Research-based reading/language arts to improve outcomes across ALL Tiers, including special education
  • Simple and scientifically sound basic skills screening for early intervention and to determine when disability may be suspected
  • Progress monitoring across Tiers and programs
  • Special education assessment practices for specific learning disabilities (SLD), writing more time and cost efficient IEP goals to ensure scientifically sound progress monitoring and revision of IEPs when appropriate
  • Secondary MTSS
  • Supporting high quality and high fidelity implementation.

Attendance is limited and we expect to fill all available spaces within 45 days of initial announcement. 

Digging Deeper into MTSS Practices

What We Know About Reading, Mathematics, and School Climate that is Trauma Informed and Evidence-Based

New Orleans

April 11th and 12th, 2019

Join us for our 5th Annual MTSS Conference in New Orleans!

In conjunction with the the Louisiana State University Human Sciences Human Development Center (LSUHDC), Data-Based Conferences will be bringing our team of national experts to back to New Orleans on Thursday and Friday, April 11th and 12th, 2019. 

Through a combination of whole group keynotes and smaller group break outs that participants choose to attend, our nationally recognized presenters will offer a range of professional development experiences for schools that are very experienced to those just getting started. Among the key topics will be the following:

HOW READING SCIENCE SHOULD INFORM READING INSTRUCTION

There is a remarkable consensus about the key components of effective reading instruction, yet the gap between what we know and what we do still impacts millions of students. Learn about what works (and doesn't) from one of our leading reading experts, Dr. Louisa Moats.

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.

MTSS IN DIVERSE COMMUNITIES FROM TEAMS TO INTERVENTIONS FOR AT RISK MALES OF COLOR

MATHEMATICS AND MTSS

Typical MTSS implemention begins and ends with reading/language arts and behavior supports. However, the needs of America's students in mathematics are just as important. Learn about how to undertake Math MTSS implemenation from Dr. Amanda VanDerHeyden.

Our other nationally recognized experts will bring professional development on MTSS practices that are scientifically sound, AND  practical to support your implementation efforts, including:

* Behavior support strategies to improve school climate

* Simple and scientifically sound basic skills screening for early intervention and to determine when disability may be suspected

* Progress monitoring across Tiers and programs

* Special education assessment practices for specific learning disabilities (SLD), and writing more time and cost efficient IEP goals to ensure scientifically sound progress monitoring and revision of IEPs when appropriate

* Secondary MTSS

* Supporting high quality and high fidelity implementation.
