special education teacher at a K-5 elementary school
It is vital that special education teachers understand the process for identifying individuals with disabilities and involve general education teachers, special education teachers, administration, parents, and other experts. The most valuable part of this process is collecting and analyzing data through the Response to Intervention (RTI) or Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) processes. Teachers will need to understand these processes, know how to follow the processes, and be able to articulate the processes to other stakeholders.
For this assignment, take on the role of a special education teacher at a K-5 elementary school. Your principal has asked you to prepare a presentation to inform new general education teachers about the basics of special education identification and referral, evaluation, and eligibility for individuals with disabilities.
Create a 10-15 slide digital presentation on the topic of special education referral, evaluation, and placement procedures.
