Using MTSS for Intervention Decision Making to Improve Child Language Outcome
The purpose of this collaborative project is to support the scale-up of Pennsylvania's Early Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) in infant-toddler programs across the state. The project will employ two effective and widely implemented models that have been applied in infant-toddler programs. This project will document the feasibility and impact of using progress monitoring measurement (Early Communication Indicator; ECI) and evidence-based language strategies (Promoting Communication Tools for Accelerating Language in Kids; PC TALK) aimed at building parents and/or teachers' capacity to incorporate naturalistic language strategies into daily home and/or center-based classroom routines within a statewide MTSS focused model to support children's language development and support systemic program improvement and scale-up efforts.
