Getting the Most out of MTSS: The Added Benefits of Assistive Technology and MTSS

Register Now

Multi-tiered systems of supports (MTSS) has been shown to promote positive academic and functional outcomes for all students. However, schools are struggling to find a balance between providing high quality core instruction and supplemental supports at Tiers 2 and 3. 

Assistive technology for struggling students, including those with disabilities, can ensure that all students access and benefit from core instruction while simultaneously receiving intervention to address identified deficit areas.

In this webinar, the Dr. Bailey will:

  • Share examples of how assistive technology can enhance Tier 1 access and benefit
  • Explain how assistive technology can accelerate learning across the tiers of supports
  • Clarify why assistive technology is essential for accelerating learning for students receiving Tiers 2 and 3 intervention
