Inclusion Workshop W-13

MTSS-RTI Strategies for an Effective Learner  

Length: 3-6 Hours  

This session looks at what constitutes an effective student who is primed to learn- thinking about the diverse attention levels, organizational skills, motivation, skill sets, and individual learner characteristics. Investigate how research-based interventions effectively respond to learner characteristics, whether students have a label of specific learning disability, ADHD, autism, or an emotional or behavioral disorder. Responsive interventions are outlined for students with and without IEPs. 

Learn how to: 

  • Proactively address your students’ diverse learning needs, using multitiered systems of support and response to intervention (RTI). 
  • Gain evidence-based strategies that match the characteristics of effective learners.
  • Receive guidance on how to implement multitiered, responsive interventions to meet students’ learning needs across the disciplines.
  • Discover how to create a supportive classroom culture that helps close achievement gaps and improve learning. 


General and special education teachers, curriculum coordinators, paraprofessionals, and other school personnel of students in Grades K-12.
