Response to Intervention (RtI) integrates assessment and intervention within a multi- level prevention system to maximize student achievement and to reduce behavior problems. With RTI, schools identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student’s responsiveness, and identify students with learning disabilities. (National Center on Response to Intervention, 2008) + Common Definitions of RtI Response to intervention integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and to reduce behavior problems. WithRTI, schools identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student’s responsiveness, and identify students with learning disabilities or other disabilities. + Common Definitions of RtI Response to Intervention (RTI) is the systematic use of assessment data to most efficiently allocate resources in order to improve learning for all students (Burns & VanDerHeyden, 2006). + Common Definitions of RtI RtIis an effective approach to general school improvement “RtI is more than prereferrals services; it is a comprehensive service delivery system that requires significant changes in how a school serves all students” National Association of State Directors of Special Education (2006, May). Myths about response to intervention (RtI). Retrieved online October 31, 2007, from http://www.nasdse.org + Common Definitions of RtI Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tiered approach to help struggling learners. Students' progress is closely monitored at each stage of intervention to determine the need for further research-based instruction and/or intervention in general education, in special education, or both. RTI Action Network (2008). What is RTI? Retrieved September 24, 2008 from http://www.rtinetwork.org/ + Brief History of RtI National and special interest group concern over the over- identification of Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD). 2001 U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs convened and produced: “Responsiveness to Intervention: An alternative approach to the identification of learning disabilities” (Gresham, 2002). 2004 Reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). 2006 IDEA operationalized with RtI. + Multi-tiered Model of Intervention School Wide Instruction and Universal Screening (Martinez & Nellis, 2006) Positive Climate (SEL) Differentiated Instruction Supplementary Instruction and Progress Monitoring Group Interventions Intensive Instruction and Continued Progress Monitoring Individualized Special Services + What does this mean in practice? In Illinois, all Districts must have their RtI plan by January. Less children will be identified for Special Education Services. More teacher training will be needed for differentiated instruction and assessment. More comprehensive support services should in place for all children and families. More children in general education classrooms will have supports. Some supports may take place before and after school. + How does this relate to ASP? ASP are considered a crucial component of support services (social, academic and family) ASP are another setting where coordinated supports may exist and be documented ASP are good at positive climate & differentiated instruction!! ASP provide positive supports for youth and participating in their intervention plan may help them get the best education possible! ASP providers should be supportive of services for youth that take place after school hours that support students’ individual progress (mental health services, SES, mentoring). + After School in the context of RtI School Wide Instruction and Universal Screening (Martinez & Nellis, 2006) Community, Family and Enrichment Another Context for Personal and Programs Academic Success Supplementary Instruction and Progress Monitoring Opportunities for smaller groups and Coordinated services and supports alternative teaching strategies Intensive Instruction and Continued Progress Monitoring Mentoring, tutoring and personal Support and Report relationships + Links National Center on Response to Intervention www.rtiforsuccess.org ISBE:http://www.isbe.state.il.us/RtI_plan/default.htm National Research Center on Learning Disabilities: http://www.nrcld.org/index.html PBIS: http://www.pbis.org/main.htm SEL: http://www.casel.org/ US Dept of Education: http://idea.ed.gov/explore/view/p/,root,dynamic,QaCorner,8, IDEA Partnership: http://www.ideapartnership.org/ + Resources ISBE contact: Marica Cullen 217-557-7323 CPS Contact: Jen Loudon 773-553-3603 LPA Contact: Anna Koelln 630-649-6624 + RtI and you!
