How Can Early Intervening Services and Responsiveness to Intervention Work Together? Parent Page. Winter 2007
National Research Center on Learning Disabilities
One of the hallmark changes in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004), which was signed into law in December 2004, allows for the use of special education funds (Part B) for at-risk students. These are students who may need additional academic or behavioral support but who do not qualify for special education services. This change is referred to as early intervening services. IDEA 2004 Section 613(f)(1) states: "A local educational agency (LEA) may not use more than 15% of the amount such agency receives under this part (Part B)... to develop and implement coordinated, early intervening services... for students in kindergarten through grade 12 (with particular emphasis on students in kindergarten through grade 3) who do not meet the definition of a child with a disability... but who need additional academic and behavioral support to succeed in a general education environment." These funds, which cannot exceed 15 percent of the Part B funds, have a restriction: They have to be used to deliver scientifically based academic and behavioral interventions within the general education environment. This brief was developed to help readers understand a provision in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 referred to as early intervening services and how these services are related to the responsiveness to intervention approach to education.
