I just wanted to send y’all big praises for your TSHA presentation on RTI. Thank you for sharing so many outstanding forms and a more streamlined process. I appreciate you sharing your study and the referral packet. This is something I can use immediately and that will make a difference on my campus. Thanks again! – Kate Stoneham, SLP
Tangible steps are described to make this a reality on your caseload. The greatest difficulties that educational professionals face are presented. The history of RTI (Response to Intervention) is discussed so that we can gain perspective on how to positively influence it. A case study exhibiting the use of over 40 referral documents is followed to demonstrate the ease and power of collaborating with teachers.
Participants will be able to:
- Modify current RTI processes to include new findings that improve referrals
- Formulate a macro approach to looking at the results of RTI from a a broader perspective to further drive accurate assessment
- Analyze the demographic make-up of students in special education
- List three ways RTI can reduce caseload work, better identify students, and reduce special education spending
