Response to Intervention
10/11/2012 Published by: Suzanne
What happens when a parent or teacher sees a student falling behind their peers in one or more areas of their education? Usually there is an “intervention” of some sort . . . some type of instruction to help with the student’s specific problem. That student’s progress is then monitored to see if the intervention is working or not. Information on the amount of progress the student made is gathered to help shape future instruction and educational decisions.
“Response to Intervention” refers to a specific approach used to integrate the instruction and the assessment components of this process so as to prevent a “wait to fail” situation. By following this systematic approach, students in need can get the help (the intervention) they need promptly in hopes of preventing drastic set-backs in the progress of their education.
In an effort to further promote the use of this model of systematic intervention, the National Center on Response to Intervention was established. You can “check out” more in-depth information about the Response to Intervention educational model and the work of the National Center on Response to Intervention in our SchoolQuest.org™ Library's Elementary section.Share This Page
