Supports for Special Education Referrals
Welcome to the Supports for Special Education Referrals course. Within this course, we will review how data collected through the intervention process should be used by problem-solving teams to inform decisions regarding referrals for special education.
This course is designed for teachers, staff, and administrators of PK-12 schools, as well as ESC staff; however, all learners are welcome.
After engaging in this course, learners should be able to do the following:
- Describe how data from the multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) framework inform the referral process
- Identify how MTSS data can be used as a component of student evaluation
- Describe how MTSS data can inform individualized education program (IEP) development for eligible students
This course is approved for 2 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours. Assessments of learner achievement of the objectives will include reflection/application activities, knowledge checks, and wrap-up questions. You will complete one lesson module at a time.
