Dr. Lesley Sylvan, MS, EdM, EdD
Thursday March 24, 2022
6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
The focus of this course is exploring how speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can have a meaningful role in public schools through active participation in the multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) framework This presentation will describe how SLPs’ roles within MTSS align with other related educational frameworks such as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
Identify the key features of the multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) framework and identify three reasons why it is important for school-based SLPs to take an active role within this framework
Explain how MTSS relates to other educational frameworks like Response to Intervention (RtI), Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
Identify the challenges that can arise when SLPs collaborate with educators (based upon the presentation and personal experiences) and name at least three specific solutions to address these challenges.
Compare and contrast the various ways that SLPs purposefully collect data to inform decisions within the MTSS framework and identify the pros and cons for each one
Identify the four decision-making points SLPs must address related to MTSS and explain why data is needed for each decision.
