T40 - Narrowing the Vocabulary Gap: Supporting Early Language and Vocabulary Within an MTSS Framework

Oct 25, 2018 4:45pm ‐ Oct 25, 2018 5:45pm


Description

Children enter school with meaningful differences in vocabulary knowledge, and the vocabulary gap grows larger in the early grades. MTSS or RTI systems hold promise for transforming classrooms and schools by increasing the effectiveness of vocabulary instruction for at-risk students. This session describes a program of research supporting vocabulary development within an MTSS framework. Findings suggest that teachers and schools can narrow the vocabulary gap when they increase the intensity of instruction and intervention.

Learning Objective:

  • RESEARCH: Examine research findings and implications for practice relevant to students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities.

Speaker(s):

  • Michael D. Coyne, Ph.D., Professor, Neag School of Education, University of Connecticut
