Small Group Intervention

Small Group Automation Tool:
The Small Group Automation Tool can be used to support all students in an MTSS framework. As an intervention, teachers utilize the skill inventories to determine the earliest foundational skills that are in need of development. As a supplement to the core, teachers can use the skill inventories to target specific needs as well as select skill lessons that correspond with core instruction to support differentiated small group instruction. The scripted lessons are found in Structured Literacy to support teachers in delivering high quality instruction. The direct link between assessment and lessons supports teachers more effectively and efficiently to meet the needs of individual students.
