PRESS offers multiple workshops to help you implement the framework effectively in your school. Workshops may be sequenced throughout the school year to provide comprehensive approaches to your implementation of PRESS. Each workshop is described briefly below. Please contact us to learn more and explore options for online or in-person delivery.


Classwide Interventions

Learn an efficient process to analyze screening data and plan supplemental tier 1 supports for whole-class implementation. Specifically, we demonstrate a classwide intervention framework for classrooms where over half of students have been identified as below grade level on a universal screening measure.

Tier 2 Interventions & Introduction to Progress Monitoring

Learn how to identify students' intervention needs using the PRESS diagnostic tools and then select and implement specific, skilled-based interventions from the PRESS Intervention Manual.

Making Decisions with Progress Monitoring Data

Learn to examine progress monitoring data and analyze the impact of interventions. A focus is placed on continuous progress monitoring, both at the skill and grade level. Prior participation in the full day workshop Tier 2 Interventions and Introduction to Progress Monitoring is required.
