Is your school exploring, or planning to implement Multi-Tiered Systems of Service (MTSS) for reading? In this session, we will provide practical guidance and hands-on activities geared toward enhancing reading interventions, with a focus on evidence-based intervention strategies in elementary reading. We will help make MTSS concrete by offering real-life examples of how schools plan, develop and implement tiered services. We will also provide training on a set of easy-to-implement, evidence-based reading intervention strategies to boost skills in phonological awareness, decoding, reading fluency, as well as comprehension.

Learning Objectives
- Essential components of a MTSS for elementary reading (screening, intervention, progress monitoring).
- Learn a set of evidence-based reading intervention strategies for basic reading skills
- Identify steps to begin implementing the supplemental reading intervention in your school
Ideal for: General & Special Educators (K-5th grades), School Psychologists, Instructional Coaches, Administrators, & Graduate Students in Education related fields
