Response to Intervention: Considerations for Research and Systems Change
Kovaleski, Joseph F.
School Psychology Review, v36 n4 p638-646 2007
This invited commentary on the series of articles regarding the state of the extant research and practice concerning the implementation of response to intervention (RTI) will focus on the following issues: (a) what constitutes a comprehensive service delivery system that uses RTI as its driving principle; (b) the dependent measure by which the effects of RTI should be evaluated; (c) how treatment fidelity can be meaningfully facilitated in real school environments; (d) what can be done with students who are not responsive to even robust interventions; and (e) which students should be identified as having specific learning disabilities. Throughout the discussion of these issues, implications for the practice of using RTI in the schools and research directions will be presented.
