Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multiple tiered system of instructional interventions that may also serve to identify children with Specific Learning Disabilities (particularly in reading and spelling). This article summarizes the findings of Evaluation of Response to Intervention Practices for Elementary School Reading (Balu, Zhu, Doolittle, Schiller, Jenkins, & Gersten, 2015). It concludes with a list of implications and suggestions for how schools might update and refine their RTI framework based on the federal study's findings.
