Event Description

Don’t Let Your Special Ed Students Fail – Understand the RTI and Guide Your School to Success!

When it comes to serving special needs students, the more tricks up your sleeve, the better. Response-to-Intervention (RTI) is an Education Department-approved initiative designed to improve instruction for individuals with disabilities by making the right intervention diagnosis as soon as possible. RTI can help ensure the future success of special education students by helping IEP teams efficiently and correctly identify and address their disabilities.

IDEA 2004 regulations threw out the old IQ-discrepancy model in favor of getting necessary interventions to needy children faster — and curbing over/under identification. But the new RTI model will only work if school faculty and staff members are well trained. In this important session, discover the tenets and benefits of RTI, important assessment techniques and the role research plays in this model.

You’ll also learn:
  • IDEA 2004 RTI regulations decoded – translation in laymen’s terms
  • The pivotal principles of RTI that you can’t afford to ignore
  • The 3-tier approach: learning disability diagnosis is as easy as 1-2-3
  • How-to accurately assess students without wasting your time and money
  • The top 5 benefits of RTI that can boost your problem-solving skills
  • Research-based interventions that can minimize your efforts and maximize results
  • Key takeaways from real-world success stories in reading and behavioral intervention

Don’t miss this opportunity to improve the lives of your students.
