Fuchs, Lynn S.
National Research Center on Learning Disabilities
The National Research Center on Learning Disabilities (NRCLD) has completed two large studies to look at how responsiveness to intervention (RTI) works at the first-grade level for preventing and identifying specific learning disabilities (SLD) in reading and math. The purpose of this report is to help professionals and parents understand what RTI is, to explain how NRCLD's findings are helping schools use RTI, and to answer questions often asked about how RTI can be used in the SLD determination process.
