RTI Response to Intervention
    What is it? Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs. The RTI process begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all children in the general education classroom.
    • High-quality, scientifically based classroom instruction. All students receive high-quality, research-based instruction in the general education classroom.
    • Ongoing student assessment. Universal screening and progress monitoring provide information about a student’s learning rate and level of achievement, both individually and in comparison with the peer group. These data are then used when determining which students need closer monitoring or intervention. Throughout the RTI process, student progress is monitored frequently to examine student achievement and gauge the effectiveness of the curriculum. Decisions made regarding students’ instructional needs are based on multiple data points taken in context over time.
    • Tiered instruction. A multi-tier approach is used to efficiently differentiate instruction for all students. The model incorporates increasing intensities of instruction offering specific, research-based interventions matched to student needs.
    • Parent involvement. Schools implementing RTI provide parents information about their child’s progress, the instruction and interventions used, the staff who are delivering the instruction, and the academic or behavioral goals for their child.

      Step 1: DEFINE THE PROBLEM - Why is this student struggling?
      Step 2: RESEARCH-BASED INTERVENTION  - (a program /exercise that has been proven and published) - ex: Orton-Gillingham or Wilson Reading
      Step 3: PROGRESS MONITOR (how to measure the success of the intervention) ex: Dibels
      Step 4: Evaluate the Success of the Intervention - Did the student make progress?
