COVID Slide: RTI Strategies to Overcome Regression After COVID

Are you looking for ways to CLOSE THE GAP for elementary students that need support because of COVID-19? COVID Slide is a term used to express the expected level of regression due to remote learning and students’ absences during the COVID pandemic. School professionals around the country foresee a significant regression in social-emotional and fine motor skills, sensory functioning, and so much more! Unfortunately, this will most likely drastically increase referrals to RtI, special education, and OT resulting in larger caseloads for all. This 2-hour webinar reviews how occupational therapy practitioners can embed strategies into the classroom that align with their districts’ Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) to help our children succeed and avoid regression.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Define the term COVID Slide and recognize how it influences the occupational therapy needs of students.
  2. Recognize positive outcomes of pushing-in to a classroom as a Tier 1 intervention for sensory and fine motor strategies.
  3. List at least three sensory environmental modifications and whole classroom strategies.
  4. Identify at least three fine motor strategies that can be embedded into the classroom.
