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.
This 2-day conference brings nationally recognized presenters who meld a strong research base with careful attention to practicality, striving to bring high quality training to practitioners at the lowest possible cost.
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 Child Find and 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
All training content will be delivered within a “how to” perspective, delivered by presenters who have supported schools in more than 40 states in their MTSS efforts.
