Child Study is a Montessori-based approach to MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Supports) and RTI (Response to Intervention). This summer we are offering Child Study Training as a six session intensive over the course of two weeks. This online training prepares educators to implement the Child Study Protocol in their school.

Session topics include:

  • Fully-implemented Montessori practice
  • Effective school-home communication & partnerships
  • Timed, concise protocols for meetings, tools, forms, and guidelines for the work
  • Data-driven planning and interventions
  • Emotional support strategies
  • Trauma-informed in-class practices
  • Case studies & practice work

This Child Study Training includes readings, videos, written assignments, and six live sessions. Live sessions will be held the following days from 1:00-3:30pm ET:

  • Monday, July 11
  • Tuesday, July 12
  • Wednesday, July 13
  • Monday, July 18
  • Tuesday, July 19
  • Wednesday, July 20
