What Special Education Directors Say about RTI
Werts, Margaret Gessler; Lambert, Monica; Carpenter, Ellen
Learning Disability Quarterly, v32 n4 p245-254 Fall 2009
An e-mail survey of special education directors was conducted to ascertain practices related to implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI) processes in North Carolina schools. The data indicate that special education directors have information about RTI as a method of identifying students with disabilities, but there is little consensus on the procedural steps for implementation of the RTI process. Multiple professionals were named as persons to be responsible for collecting data, interpreting graphs, and determining students' responsiveness or nonresponsiveness to instruction. Finally, no consensus was found on whether the discrepancy model should be retained or dropped. (Contains 2 tables.)
