Organization - Tier 2

At Tier 2, teachers begin to identify individual students whose academic needs are not being met within the curriculum rich environments provided in Tier 1. Teachers utilize the data collected in Tier 1 to identify additional supports and strategies. Teachers may contact AT Specialist/Team, gather more specific data, and begin trial use of additional equipment. AT Specialists consult with site level teams to give strategies and provide equipment for trial.
