Practical Ideas and Strategies

The RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION (RTI) model brings significant changes in how you identify and qualify students with difficult and disruptive behaviors for special education. If you are moving to a RTI model, data-driven documentation is a must when considering students for extra assistance through special education. Thisunique seminar will provide you with an understanding of the issues involved with RTI, along with the strategies to actually develop and implement a model that fits your specific needs.

Kathryn Phillips, experienced in using the RTI model for behavior intervention, will share with you ready-to-use and time-tested strategies for each of the three tiers in a RTI model. You will leave with dozens of research-based strategies for working with difficult and disruptive students, data collection and documentation systems to use in determining next steps, and ideas for developing individual behavior plans for the most defiant students.

Whether you are a veteran or at the beginning of your career, you won’t want to miss this fast-paced day that will answer your questions and provide valuable, ready-to-use strategies.

A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

How many times have you had students who struggle behaviorally, yet do not qualify for services in special education? As educators, we have all worked with students who don’t respond or who need more than we could realistically provide in the classroom. Often, we end up frustrated and overwhelmed. This seminar will provide you with answers and strategies for developing and implementing an effective RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION behavior plan for your students.

We will spend the day creating a toolkit of strategies for solving behavior problems at the minor, moderate and significant intervention levels following the RTI format of using educational practices of research-driven decision making. From a foundation of best practices, utilizing practical, ready-to-use, research-tested strategies, you will leave with dozens of effective ways to develop and implement a positive behavior climate and support system. You will learn to easily and successfully implement a five-step process for solving behaviors using the RTI model. All this, in a multi-media, fast-paced seminar that will be a resource to you for years to come.

I know how valuable your time is and I promise you will leave with easy-to-implement strategies and ideas for meeting the needs of students with difficult and disruptive behavior challenges that impact your teaching and their learning. In addition, you will gain valuable tips and techniques for collecting data, using social skills training, conflict resolution, social-emotional problem-solving skills, and much more!
