Principal Leadership, v8 n6 p12-15 Feb 2008
Response to intervention (RTI) program is a tiered process of implementing evidence-based instructional strategies in the regular education setting and frequently measuring the student's progress to determine whether these strategies are effective. The use of RTI methods as part of a comprehensive system to address student learning difficulties and behavioral challenges is a growing--and promising--approach to improving student outcomes. RTI methods have been used in general education for years, but they gained widespread attention as a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004. This article discusses the stages of implementation of RTI program and the elements of effective RTI programs. This article also discusses why it is different from other approaches.
