Selecting and Implementing Evidence-Based Reading Interventions in an RTI Model

Carolyn A. Denton, Ph.D., Children’s Learning Institute, Department of Pediatrics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston | November 2, 2012, 8:30 am-3 pm

A key component of RTI models in reading is the provision of high-quality evidence-based reading instruction and interventions. Dr. Denton will describe the current evidence from RTI reading research concerning the characteristics of effective Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions.  She will also describe research that addresses questions such as: (a) Where should reading interventions be provided? (b) Who can provide reading intervention? (c) How long should intervention be provided in each tier? And (d) How should we measure intervention response? The primary emphasis will be on early intervention for the prevention of reading difficulties, but Dr. Denton will also describe the research base on interventions for students in the intermediate and secondary grades.
