What is Response to Intervention (RtI)?

According to The National Center on Response to Intervention, RtI integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and to reduce behavior problems.  Weith RtI, schools identify students at risk for poor leaning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student's responsiveness, and identify students with learning disabilities or other disabilities.


What is the Westerly RtI delivery model?

Westerly's model for RtI utilizes two protocols that exist in most schools throughout the country:  the standard protocol and the problem solving protocol.  Both are based on the three tiered RtI model.  Tier 1 remains the same in both protocols.  Tiers 2 and 3 benefit from two different approaches with distinct advantages.

Standard Protocol

Problem Solving Protocol

Students are identified as needing

Targeted intervention based on data.

A referral is made to the RtI team regarding  an

academic or behavioral concern based on data

gathered by the referral source.  It can be made

on any student regardless of what tier they are

in at the time of the referral.

Research-based interventions are provided

to students in a small group setting in a regularly scheduled block of time. (Example:  Math Lab)

The RtI team focuses on the individual needs of the students and develops an intervention based on

those specific needs.  This allows for greater

flexibility in the type of intervention chosen for the

student.

Intervention is based on the needs of the majority of students in this group.

The team monitors the student’s progress in

response to the intervention.  Students who fail to

make sufficient progress may be referred for a more intensive intervention.

Intervention is often prescriptive or

programmatic (i.e. standard protocol

intervention).  This tends to increase the quality

and fidelity of the instruction delivered.

 

Students who fail to make sufficient progress in

Tier 2 intervention are referred for more

intensive interventions (Tier 3).
