Upcoming RTI Talk:
Speech-Language Pathologists and RTI
May 12, 2011 at 1 p.m. ET
Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can play a number of important roles in using RTI to identify children with disabilities and provide needed instruction to struggling students in both general education and special education settings. But RTI requires changes from SLPs in terms of assessment approaches as well as models of intervention and instructional support.
Join Drs. Barbara Ehren and Maureen Staskowski during our next RTI Talk as they answer your questions about the role of SLPs in RTI. They will also offer tips and examples of effective ways to engage in assessment and intervention activities based on lessons learned working with SLPs in local schools.
