The SBS Group

10 forging ahead without a map
10: Forging Ahead without a Map
  • Step 1: Needs and Readiness Analysis
slide3
Step 2: Comprehensive Plan
    • Baseline data
    • Budget
    • Data Management
    • Selection of Interventions
    • Prioritized Training Needs
    • Goals
      • Benchmarks
    • Timelines
    • Program/Outcome Evaluation
    • Staffing
    • Schedules
    • Fidelity Monitoring
9 changing your forms without changing your processes
9: Changing Your Forms Without Changing Your Processes
  • Forms document the process
  • Don’t try to make what you are already doing “fit” into RTI-style forms
  • Be VERY careful about when your forms change from general education to special education
    • When do you suspect a disability
      • Failure to identify
8 problem solving teams are the new pre referral teams
8: Problem Solving Teams are the New Pre-Referral Teams
  • Problem Solving Teams are the anti-referral team
  • Their job is to define the problem and identify the solution
7 you re already doing this
7: “You’re Already Doing This…”
  • Administrators must deal with staff resistance directly
    • Be honest
    • Provide support and training
    • Provide monitoring
    • Clearly convey your expectations
    • Don’t
      • Minimize
      • Try to please everyone
6 data management what data management
6: Data Management? What Data Management?
  • Data to be managed
    • Results of Universal Screenings for Academics AND Behavior
      • By district
      • By school
      • By classroom
      • By student
data to be managed
Data to be Managed
  • District, building, classroom, student baseline data
  • Results of universal screenings
  • CBM
  • Who is getting what intervention
  • Response data
5 thinking that tiers ii and iii can float without a tier i supporting them
5: Thinking That Tiers II and III Can Float Without a Tier I Supporting Them
  • You must start with effective instruction in ALL classrooms and universal screenings
  • Tier I is your foundation
4 failing to monitor treatment fidelity
4: Failing to Monitor Treatment Fidelity
  • Fidelity Monitoring
    • If you want an intervention to be implemented you must directly monitor fidelity
      • Need forms for collecting and reporting monitoring data
      • Training for Monitors
      • If you don’t monitor the intervention you cannot use the response data for decision making
3 training what training
3: Training? What Training?
  • Who needs what:
  • Administrators

    • Resource reallocation
    • Responding appropriately to resistance
training who needs what
Training: Who Needs What
  • Problem Solving Teams need At Least
    • Problem solving process/methods
    • Setting appropriate goals
    • Evaluating data
    • CBM
    • Evaluating “research based” interventions
    • Matching interventions to students
    • Fidelity Monitoring
training who needs what1
Training: Who Needs What

2 dnq we ll just rti them into sped

  • Lack of a basic understanding of RTI among general education teachers and administrators
1 sped directors owning it
1: “SPED Directors Owning It”
  • You are invited to this party but do not offer to be the hostess
  • Yes, everyone will be happy to let you, but…
