What is RTI?

Response To Intervenion (RTI)  is a stategy based approach to identifying and targeting intervention strategies for struggling students.  The strategies used include a multi-leveled approach.

The Multi-level prevention system includes three levels of intensity or prevention. The primary prevention level includes high quality core instruction. The secondary level includes evidence-based intervention(s) of moderate intensity. The tertiary prevention level includes individualized intervention(s) of increased intensity for students who show minimal response to secondary prevention (National Center, 2011).

At all levels, attention should be on fidelity of implementation, with consideration for cultural and linguistic responsiveness and recognition of student strengths (National Center, 2011).
