Response to Instruction and Intervention
RtII is an early intervening strategy. It is a comprehensive, multi-tiered, standards aligned strategy to enable early identification and intervention for students at academic and behavioral risks.
RtII allows educators to identify and address academic and behavioral difficulties prior to student failure. Monitoring student response to a series of increasingly intense interventions assists in preventing failure and provides data that may guide eligibility decisions for learning disabilities.
The goal of RtII is to improve student achievement using research-based interventions matched to the instructional need and level of the student.
