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 from appropriately intensive core instruction and across ALL Tiers, including special education, and grades
  • 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
