1 What is RTI?  RTI is a general education initiative aimed at improving student performance through the use of effective scientific research- based instructional strategies  RTI is a problem-solving approach to improving pre-referral services and preventing unnecessary assignment to special education  RTI is a multi-tiered approach of intervention in responding to students ’ needs

2 Instructional Support Team ’ s Role

3 Where did RTI come from? Under the Reauthorization of IDEA, 2004, students will no longer be able to be classified as having a learning disability unless scientific research- based instruction has been provided in accordance with regulatory recommendations prior to referring students to the CSE

4 Pre-Referral Interventions “ The use of pre-referral instructional strategies in the general education setting is required to address the needs of students with learning and/or behavioral problems prior to a referral to the CSE. Part 200 Regulations requires a description and documentation of any attempts to remediate a student ’ s performance prior to a referral to the CSE. ”

5 PREVENTION

6 Three Tiered Approach to Intervention 80% = Tier I 15% = Tier II 5% = Tier III Differentiation…

7 Tier I : Universal Interventions : The interventions that all students receive as part of the general education curriculum and the use of instructional strategies that all students benefit from Multi-Tiered Model Tier II : Targeted more intensive instruction including but limited to small group and/or 1:1 supplemental systematic instruction Tier III : Comprehensive evaluation by a multi disciplinary team and intensive support in order to determine eligibility for special education *At every tier, assessments are completed and data is collected and reviewed. Parents are notified when students are recommended to receive support at Tier II. * Tier intervention should be utilized for approximately 8-10 weeks.

8 Intervention Tools  Interventions are based on monitored progress and are targeted to specific student needs  Interventions are administered by classroom teacher, reading specialist, and other highly qualified teachers  Interventions provide students with ADDITIONAL instructions.

9 Important Questions For Teachers  Is there a mismatch between the student ’ s learning style and the instructional approach?  Have we defined the student ’ s needs and identified the student ’ s strengths as opposed to his deficits?  How must curriculum and instructional strategies be adjusted to support the student ’ s learning?

10 Fast Facts  Too many children are classified without exhausting appropriate instructional strategies first.  Research shows that many children who demonstrate reading difficulties in primary grades can be brought up to average levels of performance when provided with intensive and focused instruction  Intelligence is more a predictor of school success, and not necessarily a predictor of successful reading.

11 Summary: RTI is….. * Establishment of effective teaching strategies and core curriculum with general education population * Universal screening of ALL students * Use of research based interventions in general education * Measurement of student responses to interventions * Use of student RTI data to change intensity or from of new interventions
