Response-to-Intervention (RTI): You Know About It, Now What Do You Do?
The education world is abuzz with RTI (Responsiveness to Intervention) and many school districts are involved in implementing a variety of approaches. SLPs by now have typically heard about RTI but often wonder how they fit in to the various RTI frameworks. In this webinar, SLPs will explore RTI as a golden opportunity to make substantive contributions to the success of students in myriad ways. They will identify specific activities for engaging in RTI processes across all tiers, applying their unique expertise in the language foundations of curriculum and literacy. They will learn the opportunities this approach presents to SLPs to redefine their roles in the schools, as well as the pitfalls to avoid.
You will be able to:
- identify new and expanded roles for SLPs within RTI iterations that are consistent with the ASHA policy document Roles and Responsibilities of SLPs in Schools
- define the unique contributions SLPs can make to curriculum and literacy
- analyze specific activities appropriate to each RTI tier
- explore pitfalls to avoid when designing and implementing RTI activities
