Educational therapists and allied professionals who provide direct services to students and their families have an opportunity to contribute to the development of classrooms in which student needs are a primary focus. In this session, Dr. Tomlinson will examine the “state of the art” of differentiation in today’s schools and why it matters for schools and teachers to focus on responsive teaching. The key focus of the session will be an exploration of what quality differentiation looks like in classrooms where teachers practice it well, and how educational therapists and their colleagues can contribute to both school leadership for differentiation and the practice of differentiation in classrooms. Attendees will walk away with the tools needed to foster a discussion of differentiation that helps shape teacher competence and confidence in addressing diverse student needs.

Participants will be able to: explain the philosophy of differentiation, as well as its key principles and practices; evaluate opportunities they have to impact leader awareness about the nature of and need for differentiation; and describe ways they can help shape teacher competence and confidence in addressing varied learner needs.
