Response To Intervention

  • Response To Intervention

    Response To Intervention is a three-tiered problem-solving approach that identifies students with a potential for remediation.  It provides them with systematically applied strategies and targeted instruction at varying levels of intervention.  RTI's goal is to close achievement gaps for all students by adressing small learning problems before they become insurmountable.

    The three-tiered model provides increasing intensity of instruction to students in direct proportion to individual needs.  Each tier has a set of support structures or activites that helps teachers implement research-based curricular and instructional practices designed to improve student achievement.

    Tier 1 - provides general screening and group interventions that ocurr in the classroom

    Tier 2 - provides more intensive interventions that ocurr in a small group setting

    Tier 3 - provides consideration of special education services
