Objectives l.jpg
Objectives

  • Describe a conceptual framework for Recognition and Response (R&R)

  • Consider the origins of R&R in RTI and existing tiered approaches in early childhood

  • Identify key considerations for implementing & evaluating R&R in early childhood


Defining features of rti l.jpg
Defining Features of RTI

  • A core curriculum & effective instruction for all children

  • Targeted interventions for some students who meet screening criteria

  • Integrated system for universal screening and progress monitoring linked to instructional planning


Broad support for rti l.jpg
Broad Support for RTI

  • Widespread local implementation in public schools

  • Additional authority under IDEA

  • National leadership

  • Evidence of the efficacy of targeted interventions within an RTI framework for school-age children (Coleman, Buysse, & Neitzel, 2006)

  • RTI offers a promising approach for improving program quality & instruction in pre-k


Growing support for rti in early childhood l.jpg
Growing Support for RTI in Early Childhood

  • Special issue on early childhood tiered models in School Psychology Review (2006), Vol. 35, No. 4

  • Topics in Early Childhood Special Education (Winter, 2007), Vol. 27, No. 4

  • DEC brief position statement on RTI in early childhood (2007; DEC Communicator Vol. 1[3])

  • Capitol Hill Briefing & RTI national summit presentations

  • New National Center to be established in 2008 on RTI in early childhood funded by US DOE (IES)


Existing tiered models in early childhood l.jpg
Existing Tiered Models in Early Childhood

  • Building Blocks (Sandall & Schwartz, 2002)

  • Positive Behavioral Supports (PBS; Barnett et al., 2006)

  • Intervention Hierarchy (Brown, Odom, & Conroy, 2001)

  • Teaching Pyramid (Hemmeter, Ostrosky, & Fox, 2006)



Recognition screening progress monitoring l.jpg
Recognition: Screening & Progress Monitoring


Universal screening progress monitoring l.jpg
Universal Screening & Progress Monitoring

  • Universal screening within first 2 months (NAEYC, 2005) and on a set schedule after that (fall, winter, spring)

  • Tier 1: Do most children (~70-80%) meet screening criteria?

  • Tier 2: Some children (~15-25%) may need targeted interventions, along with progress monitoring

Universal Screening & Progress Monitoring

  • Tier 3: A few children (~5%) will need more individualized interventions & get more frequent progress monitoring

  • Children with identified disabilities are not required to go through RTI process; RTI should not delay referral of children with suspected disabilities (CEC, 2007)


Screening progress monitoring tools l.jpg
Screening & Progress Monitoring Tools

  • Purpose is for instructional planning, not for diagnostic evaluation

  • Designed to be used repeatedly

  • Quick, easy to administer

  • Correlated with long-term educational goals; not tied to a particular curriculum

  • Information on both level & rate of growth


Examples of screening progress monitoring measures in early childhood l.jpg
Examples of Screening & Progress Monitoring Measures in Early Childhood

  • Individual Growth & Development Indicators (IGDIs)

    • Letter naming, picture naming, alliteration, rhyming

    • Get It! Got It! Go! (http://ggg.umn.edu/)


Examples of screening progress monitoring measures in early childhood17 l.jpg
Examples of Screening & Progress Monitoring Measures in Early Childhood

  • Math CBM (VanDerHeyden et al., 2007)

    • Counting objects, number selection, number naming, counting, & visual discrimination

    • Note: To be published in 2008


Response research based curricula intentional teaching interventions l.jpg
Response: Early ChildhoodResearch-Based Curricula, Intentional Teaching, & Interventions


What are the responses within each tier l.jpg
What are the responses Early Childhoodwithin each tier?

  • Tier 1: Core curriculum and intentional teaching for all children

    • Core curriculum is research-based & comprehensive across all domains

      • May also include content-specific curricula (e.g., early literacy or math)

    • Intentional teaching of key content areas, including planning and evaluating instruction


What are the responses within each tier20 l.jpg
What are the responses Early Childhoodwithin each tier?

  • Tier 2: Explicit small group interventions augmented with embedded interventions

    • Explicit: structured, teacher-directed, content-specific interventions

    • Embedded: occur within daily activities, build on children’s strengths & interests, complement explicit interventions


What are the responses within each tier21 l.jpg
What are the responses Early Childhoodwithin each tier?

  • Tier 3: Intensive & individualized interventions

    • Research-based methods for scaffolding-- prompting, modeling, giving a directive & waiting for a response

    • Within the context of explicit approaches under Tier 2

    • Continue use of embedded interventions



An example of a tier 2 intervention l.jpg
An Example of a Tier 2 Intervention Early Childhood

  • Read It Again! (Justice, McGinty, Beckman, & Kilday, 2006)

  • Language & literacy supplement for pre-k programs:

    • Guidelines for implementing lessons (before, during, & after reading)

    • Repeated use of storybooks, picture cards, & other literacy materials

    • Repetition of key concepts

    • Appropriate for small groups


An example of a tier 2 intervention26 l.jpg
An Example of a Tier 2 Intervention Early Childhood

  • Four domains of learning: vocabulary, narrative, phonological awareness, & print/alphabet knowledge

  • Consists of 60 lessons, each addressing multiple domains (20 min/lesson)

  • Preliminary research evidence of efficacy in pre-k (Justice et al., 2007)


Collaborative problem solving process l.jpg
Collaborative Early ChildhoodProblem-Solving Process


Steps in problem solving l.jpg
Steps in Problem-Solving Early Childhood

  • May involve teachers, parents, & specialists

  • Establish desired outcomes

  • Interpret assessment results

  • Implement interventions

  • Evaluate & adjust


Next steps a pilot study of r r l.jpg
Next Steps: A Pilot Study of R&R Early Childhood

  • Piloting R&R in two states in 20-40 pre-k classes

  • Intervention package:

    • Implementation based on the R&R manual

    • An existing assessment system and language & literacy intervention

    • Problem-solving component


Next steps a pilot study of r r30 l.jpg
Next Steps: A Pilot Study of R&R Early Childhood

  • Professional development to ensure acquisition of knowledge & skills

  • Linked to manualized R&R framework and curriculum & assessment materials

    • Full-day institutes

    • Individualized consultation support

    • Community of practice meetings


Next steps a pilot study of r r31 l.jpg
Next Steps: A Pilot Study of R&R Early Childhood

  • Research questions:

    • Can teachers implement the R&R system with fidelity?

    • Do teachers find the R&R system acceptable and useful?

    • Is there evidence that R&R is beneficial in promoting the development of children with learning difficulties?


Future considerations l.jpg
Future Considerations Early Childhood

  • How should R&R be adapted for diverse learners (e.g., ELLs, children with disabilities)?

  • How can R&R be implemented across multiple domains of development & learning?

  • Need more evidence-based pre-k interventions linked to assessments for use in R&R

  • What infrastructure could best support R&R?
