A Comprehensive Approach to RtI: Embedding Universal Design for Learning and Technology
Basham, James D.; Israel, Maya; Graden, Janet; Poth, Rita; Winston, Markay
Learning Disability Quarterly, v33 n4 p243-255 Fall 2010
Response to intervention (RtI) provides tiered levels of supports to all students and allows for increasingly more intensive and individualized instruction. Similarly, universal design for learning (UDL) addresses needs of students by proactively planning for instructional, environmental, and technology supports to allow all students to effectively access and engage in instruction. Although these two frameworks are widely accepted as structures for supporting students with diverse learning needs, the relationship between them has not been adequately developed. This article describes how an ecological RtI framework that integrates scientifically based instructional strategies, proactive instructional design, and purposeful technology use can provide a more seamless support system for all students.
