Response to Intervention (RtI), a framework for providing high-quality instruction for all students, is a process gaining more and more national acceptance for managing differences in learning. Features of the RtI approach have been around for more than 20 years under various names. What has changed now is that the force of current federal law is creating a fundamental shift in instructional delivery, so as to provide a sound foundation for quality instruction for all students while also creating a systematic, data-driven process to determine students’ specific learning needs.
