Teacher Support

Just Words workshop participants taking notes

At Wilson Language Training®, our goal is to provide educators with resources, tools, and information to enhance Just Words® instruction and support its implementation with fidelity.

Our comprehensive professional learning opportunities ensure teachers are prepared to effectively use Just Words within their schools’ Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS).

Wilson offers professional learning support to individual teachers, and to schools and districts as part of a customized COMPASS plan.

Individual teachers

  • The Just Words Introductory Workshop provides the practice and guidance needed to effectively begin teaching the curriculum. The Screening and Placement Workshop focuses on background information and hands-on practice administering measures for proper student identification and placement in the program.
  • To support educators after their introductory workshop and during their first year using the program, Wilson offers additional professional learning through Virtual Implementation Support for Just Words. This online community of practice allows for the time and space needed to deepen skills, learn practical tips, and connect with peers across the country.
  • Ongoing support is provided through our online Wilson Academy®. Just Words instructors access the Just Words Learning Community for the InterActivities Whiteboard application, printable materials, video demonstrations, expert tips, FAQs, discussion boards, and additional resources.

Schools & Districts

We partner directly with schools and districts to build local capacity to use, support, and sustain the Just Words program in the district. Your Wilson team works alongside school- and district-based teams to prepare and implement your COMPASS plan.

Plans may include the development of Just Words Facilitators and/or Presenters to cultivate teacher-leaders and build sustainability.
