jaw & kew 8/2013 Response to Intervention Netcong Elementary School Jacqueline Cinotti & Kathleen Walsh
jaw & kew 8/2013 Benefits to Students Eliminate “wait to fail” Intervene at the earliest indication of student need Potentially reduce the number of special education referrals Distinguish between students whose achievement problems are due to a learning disability vs. students whose achievement problems are linked to other issues – i.e. lack of prior instruction Progress monitoring techniques provide more instructionally relevant information than traditional assessments
jaw & kew 8/2013 Benefits to Students Collaboration of school staff including the administration, classroom teacher, basic skills teachers, special education teacher, psychologist, etc. All share the responsibility of helping each child succeed. Specific instructional strategies found to benefit particular students are employed – eliminates the “one size fits all” approach.
jaw & kew 8/2013 Success In order to implement RTI correctly we need benchmark testing. Professional development is key to the success of RTI.
