  •   Guided Reading
  •   Lindamood-Bell Reading - Seeing Stars and Visualizing Verbalizing
  •   Slingerland Reading
  •   Stepping Stones to Literacy
  •   Fast Forward/Reading Assistant

Co-Teaching and Push-In Support: Intervention providers collaborate with classroom teachers to maximize classroom instructional time through workshops or centers model.

 
Individualized Education Planning: The Seneca team oversees the referral, assessment, and delivery of all Special Education and Related services to ensure compliance with state and federal requirements. 
 
Universal Screeners:  The Seneca team utilizes existing school assessment data to identify students who need additional intervention and academic supports.  If a school has not yet identified a process for universal academic screening and monitoring, the Seneca team can support the development.

Sample Screening Tools for Reading:  Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA)

  •   Fountas and Pinnell Reading Inventory
  •   Teachers College Reading Assessment
  •   AIMSweb Universal Screening Tools

Dig Deep Assessments:  After Universal Screenings have been completed, further assessment is often needed to identify particular areas of deficit and determine which interventions are most appropriate.  The Seneca team can support additional assessment of struggling students in the areas of phonics, sight-word recognition, fluency and comprehension to determine the most appropriate course for remediation.

Progress Monitoring: Once students are assigned to targeted interventions, their progress will be monitored frequently to ensure sufficient growth towards goals. 

Measuring Growth: Progressive growth on screeners and benchmarks is analyzed every 8-10 weeks to ensure students are making necessary progress.
