CCBD's Beliefs regarding Implementation of Response to Intervention
Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders (NJ3)
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004 permits the use of a process, Response to Intervention (RTI), based on a child's response to scientific, research-based intervention in the evaluation of students suspected of having specific learning disabilities. Many school districts throughout the country are working to incorporate the RTI process into their systems of student assessment and services. CCBD wishes to ensure that efforts to implement RTI are conducted in a responsible manner designed to support students with disabilities and improve educational outcomes of all students. CCBD provides these guiding principles. CCBD believes assurance of the provisions listed in this document is critical as school districts strive to implement RTI in the best interests of students.
