Discover a resource that shows teachers how to implement RTI in the classroom!

As a result of NCLB legislation and the reauthorization of IDEA 2004, Response to Intervention (RTI) is now a mandated process for documenting the existence or nonexistence of a learning disability. For educators new to the RTI approach, Response to Intervention presents an overview of key concepts with guidelines for accountability practices that benefit students in inclusive classrooms.

Presenting the three tiers of RTI techniques, the authors demonstrate how general and special education teachers can use research-based interventions effectively to individualize instruction, monitor individual student progress, and implement strategies to meet the specific needs of all students.

Response to Intervention assists educators with the basic and necessary steps to provide students with a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE), and includes:

  • Vignettes, examples, and forms based on the problem-solving and standards-based approaches to RTI
  • A chapter illustrating how RTI techniques benefit students who are economically underprivileged and/or culturally and linguistically diverse
  • A chapter devoted to Frequently Asked Questions

Featuring helpful charts and reproducibles, this timely resource is sure to become a valuable guide as educators implement programs to document how individual students respond to specific educational interventions.
