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.
