Response to Intervention is a multi-tiered instructional approach to early identify students who are experiencing difficulties in daily classroom learning and are not meeting grade-level expectations. As a student moves across each tier the academic intervention changes and becomes more concentrated. The purpose of RTI is to recognized students when they begin to struggle and provide them with a high quality instructional approach, to avoid the unnecessary LD label to students who can be helped to improve their academic performance.Within RTI students’ development are recorded through curriculum base progress monitoring. Some elements of RTI are as followed; all students are screen entering the school, there are three tiers of increasingly intense instruction, the first tier occurs in regular education, continuously monitoring students’ progress through objective tests. This monitoring is used to determine changes in how the child is taught, continuing progress monitoring throughout instruction and evaluating the changes. Involving the parent throughout the process and following the timelines of IDEA 2004, unless both the parent and teacher agree to
RtI or Response to Intervention is using quality instruction and intervention to prevent students from receiving services they do not need or services they do. The basis for this essay is to discuss the basics of RtI and the many facets that are involved, although not all inclusive it will give the reader a good overview and information to promote more research and understanding.
Recent legislation requires schools to implement a Response to Intervention (RTI) model that is based on multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS). The goal of RTI is to identify students early who are struggling academically or behaviorally and provide appropriate interventions to prevent these challenges from becoming more serious and detrimental to their success. Under the traditional system, students may not receive extra services until a problem becomes severe, and they meet criteria for a special education qualification. RTI helps schools identify children earlier using systematic and scientific universal screeners of all children. Therefore, RTI gives students who are at-risk the opportunity to receive less intensive intervention services,
Response to intervention is an approach to proving services and intervention to students who are struggling to learn at cumulative levels of intensity. RTI is used at many schools to assess, plan for, screen, and provide interventions for any student that is at risk of school failure due to behavior and academic needs. RTI is an initiative that takes place in the general education environment and also makes the decision whether instruction needs to be modified. Just like any other approach RTI has pros and cons. One pro of the RTI is that it requires very little educational disruption for testing. Other pros of RTI include being able to apply it to students of any age, not entailing a student to be failing for a significant period of time
Parents, as the voice for their children, play a crucial part in guiding and helping to insure that labels need never to define their child and make it a deciding factor to their education. Parents must do their own research as to what is best for that particular child and their situation. Parents and teachers must make it a point to always emphasize the child's abilities and strengths and grown on that, along with their disabilities. It is also important for teachers and

Response to Intervention, or also known as RtI, was created to help detect the presence of a learning disability. The intervention program is a scientific research-based, base on a student’s response. RtI can only help the regular education students that has academic problems or behavior problem. For academic problem there are three tiers to RtI, and of these tiers tier II and tier III each has a four week time period for evaluation. In the first tier the teacher will let the student continue in wholes group instruction, while documenting the action of that student. Base of what was documented doing tier I the intervention will move on to tier two.If a parent request special education testing for their child the teacher immediately start in tier II, no matter if the teacher was in the middle of tier I or have not even thought about doing a RtI for that student.
Generalist intervention model According to Cohen (1989), suggested that homeless population is extremely living in abject poverty. Homeless people have undergone through severe losses including loss of their homes, neighborhood, social roles, family, and friends. Also, homeless individual stands to be stigmatized and socially isolated. Homeless people have no control of their environment and do not know what they will eat or where they will sleep from day to day.
There are several methods of delivery for school-based interventions depending on the population that they wish to affect, which can result in varying levels of effectiveness. They can be delivered universally or can be targeted towards students identified as at-risk for particular disorders or problem behaviors (Franklin et al. 2012). In universal interventions, all students participate in the intervention, regardless of their level of risk. For example, Bierman et al. (2010) performed a study on a universal SEL program called Fast Track PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies), which was delivered to all students in the first through the third grade.
Psychoeducational Testing Interviews A special education teacher and mother of three children, one with an intellectual disability of Down syndrome, diagnosed as mild and high functioning, participated in interviews with the author. The interview questions focused on the respondent’s experience and views on psychoeducational testing, which determines a student’s cognitive abilities and academic performance levels that ultimately yields recommendations for instructional planning (Bell, S. M., 2002). In conclusion, the interview includes a reflection of the two interviews through a compare and contrast as well as how the interviewees’ perspective on psychoeducational testing corresponds to the author’s personal and professional roles. Background
The third component of IDEA is individualized education program known, as IEP. The IEP is an educational plan created by the student 's parents and by professional educators consisting of specific criteria for students in the special education program. A comprehensive assessment tool furnishes academic or behavioral growth measure that aligns with IEP goals, content area objectives, and national standards; and it enables teachers to identify trends toward meeting these expectations and monitor them.

Intervention and Theories Intervention and theories are best supported after a multidimensional assessment is completed. Assessments provide a historical overview and identifies all areas of concerns, gaps in care, and any other goals for improvement. The member has an extensive history of sexual, physical, and psychological abuse. Strength based theory is the best approach when working with the member because it will provide a foundation to build interventions upon. "Integration of strengths within the complex and often negatively skewed narrative may re socialize potential clients to perceive that psychotherapy is not only about untwisting their distorted thinking or restoring their troubled relationships, it is also about learning
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law enacted in 1990 and reauthorized in 1997 and 2004. It is designed to protect the rights of students with disabilities by ensuring that everyone receives a free appropriate public education (FAPE), regardless of ability. Furthermore, IDEA strives not only to grant equal access to students with disabilities, but also to provide additional special education services and procedural safeguards. Special education services are individualized to meet the unique needs of students with disabilities and are provided in the least restrictive environment. Special education may include individual or small group instruction, curriculum or teaching modifications, assistive technology,
