Get the guidance you need to implement response to intervention (RTI) in your school district. RTI is a multitiered approach to helping struggling learners early and effectively so they avoid failure and succeed in school. This web workshop presents five lessons from leading experts in RTI, focusing on the basics of RTI, caseload/workload issues, disproportionality of culturally and linguistically diverse children in special education, the use of RTI for learning disability (LD) identification, a communication framework for IEP teams using RTI, and the use of RTI by SLPs at the secondary level. Practical advice, case studies, and observations by leading practitioners in RTI are provided to enhance your learning.
Five 1-hour, pre-recorded lessons available on demand:
- Lesson 1: Response to Intervention: Helping Children Succeed
- Lesson 2: Using Early Intervening Services and RTI to Address Disproportionality
- Lesson 3: Response to Intervention (RTI) and LD Identification
- Lesson 4: Communication Framework for RTI: Partners, Processes, and Protocols
- Lesson 5: RTI and SLPs at the Secondary Level
This web workshop includes recorded lectures, interactive exercises, video clips, additional resources, and an exam.
You will be able to:
- list the essential components of RTI and maximize factors leading to success
- assess how Early Intervening Services and RTI can address disproportionality, in order to achieve higher individual student achievement and prevent misidentification
