General Education Interventions
General Education Interventions.
Interventions are required for a student prior to the referral process. It is important for the teacher to document what the strategies he/she has attempted in order to assist the child prior to referring him/her to the child study team. These interventions are referred to as RTI -- Response To Intervention. Response to intervention is data driven approach that includes assessments and intervention within a tiered/leveled system. This means interventions are provided at the school level, classroom level and/or individual level. This systematic approach maximizes the student's achievement and reduces behavior problems. With RTI, schools identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student's responsiveness, and the schools identify students with learning disabilities or other disabilities.
