Data-Based Consulting, Inc.


New Orleans, April 12th, 13th, 2018

In conjunction with the the Louisiana State University Human Sciences Human Development Center (LSUHDC), Data-Based Conferences will be bringing our team of national experts to back to New Orleans on Thursday and Friday, April 12th and 13th, 2018. This conference will be our 4th in New Orleans, where we routinely attract 300 educators from across the country to learn about pragmatic and research-based practices within a Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS) and Response to Itervention.

This year, we promise "something new"--expansions of last year's MTSS content to related topics with particular attention to trauma-related mental health interventions, dyslexia. diversity in team building, and severe disruptive behavior.

We also promise something "old," but updated for 2018--critical features to support high quality implementation such as foundations of research-based language arts interventions across tiers, including how to strength your core curriculum, functional assessment and decision making, and lessons learned in successful implementation. Attendees will be able to participate in selected whole group Keynote sessions as well as select Break Out sessions related to their own interests and needs. 

This year, we also offer sessions guided by our experts specifically designed to customize your "strategic doing" (aka planning for changes) in 2018-19. You'll leave New Orleans with a written plan you can be accountable for.

Our approach to MTSS and RTI is one of "Every Ed," where implementation success is a collaborative effort among multiple parties, including general, remedial, and special education. Our nationally recognized experts bring practices that are scientifically sound yet practical with respect to implementation success.
