What is Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI2)?
RTI2 is a framework for providing students with research-based instruction at all levels and intervention to meet the needs of all students through collaborative problem solving. The RTI2 framework supports academic and behavioral supports in a three-tiered model based on:
Research-based instruction for all students
Early identification of at-risk students based on school-wide universal screenings
Research-based differentiated instruction provided to at-risk students not responding to classroom-based instruction
Scheduled progress monitoring of student response to differentiated instruction/intervention
Adjusting student instruction/intervention based on student responsiveness
At the core instructional level, all students receive instruction in the classroom with 80-90% student success rate. At the strategic instructional level, 5-10% of students receive strategic, small group instruction in or outside of the classroom. At the intensive level, 1-5% of students receive intensive individualized interventions.
