Response to InterventionName620: Meeting Individual Students Needs with TechnologyDeborah NaughtonSeptember 16, 2012Response to InterventionShortly after learning disabilities were given priority as a special-education category in the Education of All Handicapped Children Act of1975, the proportion of children with learning disabilities in the general U.S. population skyrocketed from less than 2% in1976-1977 to more than 6% in 1999-2000. Response to Intervention is a program that is endorsed through federal government legislation like the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) and No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The response-to-intervention (RTI) approach is a process where 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. Struggling children are identified through teacher observations or by poor performance on assessments given to indicate which children may be at risk of academic or behavioral problems. RTI is generally structured in tiers, in the state of Georgia where I live; the RTI process has four tiers.RTI includes:screening children in the general curriculum,tiered instruction with increased intensity,evidence-based instruction,close monitoring of student progress (GDOE 2011).
