What is Response to Intervention(RTI)? 

Response to Intervention is a tiered method of intervention used to provide early assistance to children who are having difficulty learning. RTI prevents academic failure through frequent progress measurement and instructional interventions 

All students will be screened for academic proficiency. Teams of teachers will review the data and use the results to determine which students are in need of interventions.The intensity of the interventions increases with the severity of the learning delay.  

The process of RTI involves: 1) screening for at-risk students; 2) monitoring of responsiveness to instruction; and 3) determination of the course of action. Steps 2 and 3 are iterative.(Fuchs & Fuchs, 2006; Kavale et al., 2005).
