The key to unlocking powerful interventions

What does successful response to intervention look like when all the pieces come together? The underlying premise of RTI is that schools should not delay in providing help for struggling students until they fall far enough behind to qualify for special education, but instead should provide timely, targeted, and systematic interventions to all students who demonstrate the need.

With unprecedented access to nationally recognized experts who have successfully implemented RTI in a variety of settings—often with limited personnel and dwindling resources—you will learn how to create a tiered system of support that includes:

  • Tier 1 core instruction that ensures all students have access to a rigorous, essential grade-level curriculum, highly effective teaching, and embedded academic and behavioral support.
  • Tier 2 supplemental interventions that support students in a grade-level curriculum, immediate prerequisite skills, and academic and social behavior expectations.
  • Tier 3 intensive interventions that develop foundational prerequisite academic skills (reading, numeracy, writing, and English language) and behaviors without removing students from essential grade-level curriculum.

With a drill-down breakout approach full of hands-on activities and through interactive and highly engaging keynotes, this institute explores how to build an intervention system by looking at the four essential elements of a successful RTI model: collective responsibility, concentrated instruction, convergent assessment, and certain access.

Expanding on the methods detailed in their best-selling books Pyramid Response to Intervention and Simplifying Response to Intervention, the presenters include specifics on how to lead the RTI process at the site and district levels. Learn how to create a proactive process to identify students who need help, place them in the proper intervention, monitor their progress, revise interventions as needed, and determine when students no longer need additional support. Each presenter matches theory with practice and offers strategies that can immediately increase effectiveness for students and staff.

  • Create a school or district culture that focuses on student learning.
  • Build a highly effective, collaborative core program.
  • Focus core instruction on rigorous core curriculum.
  • Unpack standards into focused student learning targets.
  • Design, analyze, and utilize common assessments to improve core instruction and guide interventions.
  • Plan for embedded intervention time.
  • Engage and empower students in the learning process.
  • Target interventions to meet individual student needs.
  • Understand the critical components and implementation of a behavioral RTI system.
  • Utilize a site leadership and intervention team to support schoolwide interventions.
  • Design master schedules that provide core instruction, interventions, and elective options for students at risk.
  • Identify effective Tier 3 interventions for students struggling with reading, writing, numeracy, and English language.
  • Determine the best ways to utilize schoolwide support staff in the RTI process, including psychologists, counselors, special education teachers, and intervention specialists.
  • Use intervention time to extend learning for students who have already mastered grade-level expectations.
  • Understand the district’s role and responsibilities in the RTI process.
