Learning Disabilities: Research & Practice, v18 n3 p157-71 Aug 2003
This article describes the two basic versions of the responsiveness-to-intervention (RTI) approach for identifying learning disabilities, the problem solving model and the standard-protocol approach. It reviews evidence on effectiveness and feasibility and concludes that more needs to be understood before RTI may be viewed as a valid identification means. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
