Response to Intervention, or RTI, is an educational strategy used in schools to:
1) Provide effective and high-quality instruction,
2) Monitor all students’ progress to make sure they are progressing as expected, and
3) Provide additional support (intervention) to students who are struggling.
RTI can be considered an early intervention tool that is designed to quickly identify students who need extra help, thereby preventing long-term failure. The monitoring of students allows teaching professionals to identify the exact skill areas where pupils need additional instruction that is targeted to a student’s individual needs.
