Timothy Runge, professor and chair of the Educational and School Psychology Department, was invited to present a workshop titled "Enhancing Cross-Disciplinary Problem-Solving and Decision-Making within Tiers 1, 2, and 3 and the Eligibility Process" to teams of educators at the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on February 28, 2020.

The focus of this workshop was on how school teams can use response-to-intervention models for providing evidence-based instruction and intervention to K-12 students experiencing barriers to learning.

Runge also discussed how school teams can use the response to intervention approach for the identification of students with specific learning disabilities.

Some of this work relates to an upcoming co-authored book Runge is collaborating on with Joseph Kovaleski (IUP faculty emeritus) and Amanda VanDerHeyden (president of Educational Research and Consulting, Inc.).
