Effective Reading Intervention: Characteristics, Differences, and Systems of Support

Tiered instruction models such as Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) are designed to provide more effective instruction to students who are identified as being more at risk of future reading difficulties. Implementing a system of increasingly intensive instructional supports begins with careful consideration of the characteristics of effective reading intervention. This session will describe the characteristics of intervention instruction, differentiate it from classroom instruction, and outline the systems-level variables to address when implementing MTSS.

Participants will learn:

  • The characteristics of intervention instruction
  • The differences between intervention instruction and classroom instruction
  • The systems that support effective intervention instruction
