Seldom, do students all progress at the same rate. For this reason, Response for Intervention was initiated. The below article will help explain this initiative.
What is Response to Intervention? RtI
Information was adapted from http://www.wrightslaw.com/idea/art/rti.hale.pdf
In 2004, Congress made many changes to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004) and RtI was a big one. We were told that resources could be shifted from an old and ineffectual “discrepancy model” of identifying and serving children with learning problems and that those resources could be put into RtI.
We could serve many more children under an RtI model than under the old discrepancy model. The premise of RtI is a good one. If you provide high quality instruction, and regularly keep track of how children are doing in the classroom, all children will succeed and achieve high standards.
A teacher modifies instruction (intervention) to help a struggling child, and then checks the child’s progress regularly (called progress monitoring) to see if the intervention is working. If the intervention is working, the problem is solved. If the intervention is not working, you change the intervention and monitor progress. This process continues until the child improves. This approach does not rely on diagnosing the child, but focuses on whether the child has a “skill deficit” or a “performance deficit,” and provides help until the child gets better.
You also avoid needless labeling of children with SLD and other disabilities. Because RtI focuses on helping all children learn and modifying instruction to meet their needs, it received critical acclaim and widespread.
