LETRS® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) is a professional development program that responds to the need for high-quality literacy educators at all levels. Developed by Louisa C. Moats, Ed.D., LETRS provides the deep foundational knowledge necessary to understand how students learn to read, write, and spell—and why some of them struggle.
Sopris Learning and the Kansas MTSS Project have partnered to certify a cadre of local Kansas LETRS trainers. LETRS provides the training at the foundation of their Multitier System of Supports model of response to intervention.

"Standards-based Education for Students with Severe/Profound Disabilities? YES We Can!"
Download Registration Form

Kathy Staugler, CCC-SLP, has worked for over 35 years as an SLP, special education teacher, and assistive technology consultant. Her primary focus has been on students with significant disabilities and the development of strategies to enable students to participate, communicate, and make progress within their educational programs.
Who Should Attend? This session is designed for educators, related service providers, and administrators.
Location: Keystone Learning Services
What Is It? The education of students with severe/profound disabilities has been challenged by current mandates that ALL students must be receiving instruction within grade-level curriculum aligned to appropriate content standards. Very little has been presented in research to clearly identify the instructional RATIONALE, instructional STRATEGIES or instructional IDEAS that are most appropriate for students with severe/profound disabilities. This workshop will present the rationale, strategies and ideas to make learning meaningful for this population of students.
