While most special educators are familiar with using an MTSS approach for academic needs, the same problem-solving methodology can be applied to related services. This training will provide administrators with a practical framework for designing and implementing an MTSS approach in their district for both therapy services and behavioral health concerns. Providing supports to more students sooner, not only reduces referrals and qualifications, it enables districts to help more children at a lower cost overall. Resources will include suggested Tier 1 and 2 supports, recommendations for teacher and paraprofessional training, and data collection, as well as key metrics to monitor in determining the success of the model.
