By administering assessments and analyzing the results, targeted and individualized interventions can be determined to best serve the needs of students with disabilities. The actual implementation of the interventions provides teachers opportunities to collect data and gauge the effectiveness of the interventions in addressing documented student needs. Teachers can also gain important skills and knowledge on how to best advocate for practical classroom interventions. Teachers will also be able to collaborate with colleagues and families in mentoring students to take ownership of learning strategies.
Allocate at least 2 hours in the field to support this field experience,
Part 1: Assessment and Interventions
Select at least one student to whom you will administer the informal RTI assessment created in Clinical Field Experience A. Score the assessment and share the results with the student to increase understanding of his or her strengths and areas for improvement.
Collaborate with the certified special education teacher and the student to develop 2-3 interventions based on the student assessment data to support the student’s progress in the classroom. In addition, detail one intervention that can be incorporated at home with family support.
Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
Part 2: Reflection
In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect upon the following:
· Describe each intervention, including teacher, student, and family roles, where applicable.
· Your experiences administering the assessment, analyzing the results, and providing the student feedback on his or her performance.
· Explain how you expect the interventions you developed to meet the needs of the student, incorporating his or her assessment results in your response.
· Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.
