What We Do

Our job-embedded professional development approach to developing and refining special education teachers’ practices, knowledge, and skills is based on the research and evidence-based methodologies of precision teaching, structured literacy, multisensory approach, gradual release of responsibility approach, and multi-tiered systems of support.

What Does The Research Say About Equity?

The research is clear, when teachers are not adequately prepared to teach students with diverse instructional needs, the achievement gap widens, which leads to an equity issue.  One-size-fits all topic-specific workshops will not provide an instant solution.

Impactful Professional Development And Measurable Results

The Center for Student Achievement Solutions research and evidence-based program strengthens educators’ ability to:

Assessments

Interpret diagnostic, formative, benchmark, and summative assessment results to identify students’ strengths and areas of need to plan individualized instruction.

Learning Targets

Identify skill gaps to establish learning targets and expectations for students with IEPs and provide feedback on how they can reach them.

Lesson Planning

Design inclusive and equitable lesson plans based on the Gradual Release of Responsibility (GRR) model (I do, We do, You do) to ensure all students, master the concepts and skills taught.

Instruction

Implement research-proven inclusive teaching practices, model cognitive strategies and provide differentiated and individual supports to improve the outcomes for students with disabilities through appropriate modifications, accommodations, and supplementary aids.

Differentiation

Provide high-quality corrective instruction to help remedy the areas that have not been mastered as a follow-up to assessments for students to master the concepts and skills previously taught.

Measure Impact

Apply new knowledge in the classroom and receive feedback, with data collection to reflect on how teaching practices influence student learning over time.

What Does The Research Say About Student Achievement?

National Center for Learning Disabilities states that the success of students with learning disabilities can be a reality when every classroom has a well-prepared, and highly effective teacher.
