Response to Intervention as a Framework
The Response to Intervention (RTI) module is customized in advance to suit the challenges of your particular school. After extensive preparation and based on the best research available, we design programs to meet your school’s specific needs, with consideration for the curriculum you are using, the protocols that are effective in your school, and your desire for improvement. RTI is the new SST (or student case management) process.
By designing your school’s 3 Tiers of Intervention, we can tailor how you provide effective prevention services. We find that it is useful to provide technical assistance to administrators, and also to follow-up with additional modules or workshops.
This module can be modified according to grade levels (elementary, middle, or secondary) or if you already have a RTI system, we can review that system and recommend strategies for adjustments that will lead to further improvement.
The RTI Framework provides a flexible shell for the programs that will affect your school.
Because of the nature of intervention, follow-up sessions become an important way to assess and recalibrate the changes that have been instituted.
