Using Response-to-Intervention to Enhance Outcomes for Children
VanDerHeyden, Amanda M.; Jimerson, Shane R.
California School Psychologist, v10 p21-32 2005
Response to Intervention (RTI) models have substantial promise for screening, intervention service delivery, and to serve as catalysts for system change to enhance the educational outcomes of children. RTI represents a more flexible service delivery model; however, it is essential to articulate how RTI can be effectively implemented and demonstrated to be functionally meaningful. This article provides a brief review of probable advantages and possible challenges of implementing RTI and also provides an overview of data emerging from the Screening to Enhance Equitable Placement (STEEP) problem-solving model. Further research is necessary to clearly delineate the purpose(s), operationalize procedures and judgments, and evaluate the decision-making utility of the RTI models in practice.
