Abstract We address the advantages and challenges of service delivery models based on student response to intervention RTI for preventing and remediating academic difficulties and as data sources for identification for special education services.
The primary goal of RTI models is improved academic and behavioral outcomes for all students. We review evidence for the processes underlying RTI, including screening and progress monitoring assessments, evidence-based interventions, and schoolwide coordination of multitiered instruction.
We also discuss the secondary goal of RTI, which is to provide data for identification of learning disabilities LDs. Incorporating instructional response into identification represents a controversial shift away from discrepancies in cognitive skills that have traditionally been a primary basis for LD identification.
RTI processes potentially integrate general and special education and suggest new directions for research and public policy related to LDs, but the scaling issues in schools are significant and more research is needed on the use of RTI data for identification.
Department of Education, A variety of state, federal, and district school-based programs attempt to address different obstacles to learning academic skills. With the passage of the No Child Left Behind Act, which targets the needs of economically disadvantaged children through Title I funding, the federal government placed greater emphasis on early intervention, high-quality instruction, and accountability for academic outcomes.
Department of Education,which governs the provision of special education services in U. Those children who do not respond adequately may be referred for a comprehensive evaluation for eligibility for special education services. Through the comprehensive evaluation, some children will be eligible for special education and others may need alternative services because their difficulties in learning are not due to an LD or other type of disability consistent with a need for special education.
Service delivery models that provide universal screening, progress monitoring, and tiered, or layered, interventions have been widely adopted in No Child Left Behind and Title I and are a specific focus of IDEA RTI models are multitiered service delivery systems in which schools provide layered interventions that begin in general education and increase in intensity e.
There are many approaches to the implementation of RTI models, which are best considered as a set of processes and not a single model, with variation in how the processes are implemented. These approaches have at least two historical origins, both representing efforts to implement prevention programs in schools.
The second origin derives from research on preventing reading difficulties in children. Classroom teachers receive professional development in effective instruction and ways to enhance differentiation and intensity through flexible grouping strategies and evaluations of progress Tier 1, primary intervention.
Children who do not achieve specified levels of progress based on local or national benchmarks receive additional instruction in small groups of three to five students for 20—40 minutes daily Tier 2, secondary intervention.
If the child does not make adequate progress in secondary intervention, an even more intensive and individualized intervention Tier 3, tertiary intervention is provided that may involve smaller groups, increased time in intervention 45—60 minutes dailyand a more specialized teacher.
Progress is monitored weekly or biweekly. These models link with special education because inadequate instructional response allows for determination of adequate and inadequate responders and provides a framework for implementing seamless interventions between general and special education.The Response to Intervention initiative has risen to the top of today's instructional agenda and yet it is a process that is unfamiliar terrain for many teachers.

Tier 2 Interventions Tier 2 interventions are small group interventions (typically students) that target an identified deficit. The Rapid Social Response (RSR), a multi-donor program was established in to help the world’s poorest countries, in partnership with the World Bank, to build effective social protection systems..
RSR is one of the key instruments for implementing the World Bank’s Social Protection and Labor Strategy for resilience, equity and opportunity in IDA-eligible countries. The effort to understand Response to Intervention (RTI) has occupied many thousands of hours and hundreds of position and policy statements, white papers, consensus documents, and research articles.
