The Science of Reading within an MTSS Framework


Session Dates

Wednesday August 11, 2021 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM - Webinar

Participants will expand their knowledge of the science of reading and apply that knowledge via the adoption and sound implementation of evidence-based practices. They will also enhance core reading instruction and align increasingly intensive supports and services across tiered providers using a problem-solving process grounded in equitable access and that includes an emphasis on meaningful family engagement.


Participants will be able to:

  • Analyze system, grade, and student data to identify general and targeted areas of improvement to inform instruction and intervention
  • Describe the conceptual underpinnings and components of a tiered system of support and connections to the science of reading and prevention of early reading failure
  • Identify a major theoretical literacy framework and the big ideas in reading
  • Synthesize student growth and achievement data to inform eligibility decision-making using an RTI approach and best practices/research in SLD Identification
