By definition, RTI is the practice of
- High-quality instruction and intervention matched to student needs
- Using learning rate over time and level of performance
- To inform educational decision
This is an excerpt from a booklet which is produced by the - NASDSE
To accomplish this, RTI encompasses four key principles:
1.Teach all students effectively
3.Use a multi-tier model of service delivery
4. adopt a problem solving methodology
The purpose is not to identify students for special educations services but to help every student achieve at a high level. It is based on the belief that all students can learn.
RTI uses a three tier model beginning with universal screening of every child to identify students at risk. Both academic and behavioral systems are included.
Tier 1: Core Instruction and Universal Interventions
Tier 2: Targeted Interventions
Tier 3: Intensive Interventions
