Presented by SPG Clinical Supervisors (3 Hours)
Preschool is the ideal time to offer RTI, as targeted teaching and interventions can prevent or mitigate the occurrence of language, literacy, and academic learning difficulties for any child. English-language learners and students who have had limited exposure to core concepts and vocabulary directly benefit from pre-K RTI. In California, Maryland, Florida, Illinois and Colorado, pre-K RTI programs have effectively reduced referrals to special education, in some cases by as much as 50 percent. The presentation will focus on supporting speech, language and literacy development in the classroom b) second language acquisition c) the RTI process. Procedures, forms, parent and teacher resources (Tier 1), weekly lesson plans, materials and homework (for Tiers 2 & 3) will be provided.
