As an Intervention Specialist here at PCLC, I will assist children in the primary grades K-4 with exceptional education and social adjustment needs in the classrooms and other settings based on various factors such as age, gender, socioeconomic, and cultural background. We also work closely with parents and classroom teachers towards the balance of social, personal and academic needs of students who have been identified as needing additional help and classroom support. Finally, we monitor academic/behavioral progress quarterly as well as provide Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) to students who have been given an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
Using intervention resources related to the IEP, students will address academic goals that focus on improving relevant educational skills in areas such as reading and comprehension, written expression, and mathematics by providing in-class support, individual support, and small group. This support will allow students to learn to (1) read level literary passages and answer questions about the passages, (2) write complete sentences in the form of a paragraph (with assistive technology), (3) compute math computations using guided practices and independent strategies. We will also practice reading comprehension, writing, and math concepts using resources such as Study Island, Reading A-Z, Readworks, and Aleks.
