Response to Intervention

Response To Intervention (RTI) is a prevention and intervention process designed to lessen the number of students identified as disabled. By reducing ineffective instruction and providing intensive intervention at the first sign of learning or behavioral difficulty. Based on a three-tier model from public health, RTI focuses on a problem-solving approach to identify concerns in the classroom. It also stresses the use of evidence-based curriculum, interventions, and methods, as well as ongoing monitoring and assessment. This workshop will focus on the components of quality instruction at all three tiers, progress monitoring, data-based decision making, and problem-solving.


  • To offer earlier and more relevant help for students and to accurately diagnose if a learning disability exists that impedes successful student learning
  • To learn various strategies to modify lesson plans based on frequent progress monitoring
  • To utilize a variety of resources to assess and meet diverse student needs

Participants will:

  • Explore strategies to discover how to support a student in being more successful
  • Identify at risk students using various screening or results-based instruments
  • Monitor how students respond to interventions to update written RTI plans
  • Outline more intensive services that can scaffold a general curriculum instructional program
  • Follow formal guidelines to identify students not making sufficient progress
  • Implement a tiered approach to providing appropriate interventions for students to experience success
  • Establish communication avenues between regular education and special education staff and support services
