Courses in Tier 3 offer opportunities to learn more about intensive interventions and the use of data at Tier 3.  Intensive interventions are delivered individually to students at the highest risk for not meeting academic, behavioral, and/or social-emotional outcomes. Tier 3 learning opportunities will include courses on using data to intensify and individualize intervention, as well as the team process required to support this intensification.

Please check back for Tier 3 courses through BRIDGE-RI, coming in 2020!

(Coming Soon!) Breaking the Myths: Dyslexia Identification in the Schools

The purpose of this self-paced course is to help educators, specialists and interventionists understand how identification of Dyslexia is consistent with specific learning disability (SLD) identification processes within an MTSS framework. In this course you will:

  • Understand how Dyslexia fits into the disability category of “specific learning disability” which can be identified in the schools?
  • Discuss how utilizing systematic phonics instruction is essential in varying degrees in all levels of a tiered framework for students with reading difficulties, including those with Dyslexia.
  • Choose assessment tools that could be used within a tiered continuum to screen and monitor progress of students who have reading difficulties, including students with Dyslexia.
  • Identify the next steps if a specific learning disability in reading is suspected, including how to approach developing a comprehensive evaluation.
The enrollment feature has been de-activated for this course. Please check back in June 2020.
