Response to Intervention
The RTI process is a multi-step approach schools use to provide struggling students services and interventions at increasing levels of intensity. At each tier, the progress of each student is progress-monitored. The results of this monitoring as well as other information are used to make decisions about the need for further research based instruction and interventions.
The RTI process offers earlier, more relevant help for students at risk for learning disabilities, and provides school staff with critical information about the instructional needs of the students, which can be used to create effective educational interventions.
