Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) promote academic and behavioral achievement through frequent progress monitoring, ongoing data collection and analyses, and evidence-based intervention for students who need it. Yet, all too often, only academic formative assessments are used to identify struggling students and inform supports. Assessments to measure students’ social-emotional competencies are used far less often, which can leave educators wondering about the “why” behind students’ academic and behavioral struggles.
Join this research-rich edWebinar, presented by Dr. Stephen Kilgus, to learn:
- How PBIS and SEL fit within MTSS and work together to support students’ broader mental health
- How behavior screening and progress monitoring can facilitate overall MTSS efforts to improve student achievement
- Specific measures that can be used as the foundation of social-emotional and behavioral assessment
Don’t miss this opportunity to enhance your understanding of the role social-emotional behavior screening and intervention has in building a robust MTSS that addresses the learning needs of the whole child. This edWebinar will be of particular benefit to school and district leaders, guidance counselors, and school psychologists of kindergarten through high school grade levels. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
