The mission of special education programs is to ensure that students with disabilities develop intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially, and vocationally through the provision of an appropriate individualized education program in the least restrictive environment. The design and delivery of specially designed instruction (SDI) is the core of special education. SDI is the vehicle by which we ensure students with disabilities receive high-quality instruction and services that will result in progress toward academic and functional standards, graduation, and meaningful post-secondary outcomes.
Day 1 will provide an analysis of the definition on specially designed instruction and interventions, and focus on the practical aspects of designing and delivering SDI, to the end that high quality services and programs for students with disabilities are continuously offered and improved.
Day 2 will explore the scientifically-based practice of progress monitoring, a set of activities which assesses student performance. Progress monitoring will also be examined from the lens of understanding intervention effects, including the fidelity of implementation when specially designed interventions are assigned to instructional partners for delivery. Participants will experience how progress monitoring works in the context IEP processes, the benefits and challenges of progress monitoring IEP goals, and how progress monitoring is particularly valuable in curriculum- based IEP development, documentation, and effectiveness assessment.
ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED FOR BOTH DAYS.
Instructors: Lynne Loeser, Lauren Holahan, Jenny Eigenrauch, Lynn Makor and Laurie Ray
