At Emerson, we provide support for our children at every level.
The Emerson Intervention program is organized to support the work of the classroom teacher. Students who may need additional academic, behavioral, and/or social support are identified by teachers through a process of assessment and observation. The Emerson intervention team, which consists of the reading, resource, full inclusion teacher, and speech teachers, meets to plan appropriate interventions based on the specific needs of the identified students. Intervention groups are arranged and taught by teachers and staff both during and after school.
Common interventions include:
- One-on-one and small group Reading Recovery
- Small groups focused on reading, writing, and math
- Read Naturally fluency groups
- Speech and language groups and English Language Development and social groups.
Regular assessments monitor the progress of the intervention groups throughout the year and intervention work is coordinated with classroom work.
