Response To Intervention: A Case Study

322 Words2 Pages
Section 1 Response to Intervention (RTI) is a 3-tiered approach used to “filter” students who are not meeting the academic levels as their peers. Watson better explains this strategy by saying; “response to intervention is a multi-tiered system integrating assessment and intervention to maximize student achievement for struggling learners at increasing levels of intensity” (Watson and Bellon-Harn, 237). A RTI approach involves implementation from the child’s teachers, general and special education, and speech-language pathologists (SLP). The purpose of RTI is finding a problem before the child fails. This is important because the earlier the disorder is found, the sooner therapy can begin, hopefully, resulting in a more successful intervention.
