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.
