Response to Intervention (RTI) and Learning Disability (LD)

untitledResponse to Intervention has been found to be of massive help in assisting such students who have a specific learning disability (SLD).

With the implementation of Response to Intervention, these students get help even before they can find that they are special, face failure or even feel frustrated. RTI encourages all the educators, especially the school – teachers to provide the intervention based on data analysis of the education, behavioral, learning ability, concentration and the performance, etc.

Unlike the usual approach of “waiting for results of progress and performance”, RTI is based on the “continuous monitoring and providing support as and when required” approach. The early implementation of the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach enables the educators to conclude the type of interventions that work. The educators realize the need and provide the right amount of support in from if intervention even before the student is referred for being evaluated for the special education. It enables them to come up with the strategies, extended services, and the support that might demonstrate the pedagogy that is beneficial and fetches absolute results.


Sharing the Responsibility:

Effective implementation of the RTI module enables the teacher, school administrators, parents, and even the therapist or the specialist (mentors) to share the evolution process of the students. Thus, there is no gap in providing the continuous help to the student with specific learning disability. They are being monitored continuously and thoroughly. Furthermore, the teachers, mentors, and parents benefit from each other’s observation, expertise, and ideas.

Efficient implementation of the Response to Intervention (RTI) results into well-informed educators and parents. They continually monitor the response of the targeted instruction. They can easily discuss, share, and accurately decide upon the ideas that work more accurately with each specific child.

Not only does RTI enable the students to be helped even before the assessment of specific leaning disability steps in, but also provides the exclusive data to enable the specialist determine the learning disability eligibility as well as its classification. Parents, teachers, as well as mentors (various therapy specialists) benefit from the results of evolutions that are based on the RTI. It enables them to take the best decisions in the interest of the student with the specific learning disability.
