RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION
READING RECOVERY & RTI:
A PERFECT FIT
Response to intervention (RTI) is a framework to help schools identify and support struggling students before they are diagnosed with learning disabilities. This approach, enacted into law in 2004, allows schools to use 15% of their special education funding to implement RTI programs and practices. Reading Recovery-trained teachers work closely with both classroom teachers and school teams to monitor progress and make instructional decisions about teaching and learning.
Reading Recovery is an ideal fit for schools implementing RTI because it meets core features identified by leading education organizations.
