Response to Intervention

Read Naturally and Response to Intervention

Response to Intervention (RTI) is a well-developed, collaborative process involving regular and special education.  RTI emphasizes collaborative decision-making using periodic assessment, differentiated instruction in classrooms, and increasingly intense interventions as needed. The critical components of RTI are well-designed curriculum and instruction, interventions at increasing levels of intensity, well-trained staff, and assessment-driven decision-making.

Most schools develop a multi-tiered RTI model to provide struggling learners with services and interventions at increasing levels of intensity: 

3-Tier Response to Intervention Model

In an RTI model all students receive standards-based comprehensive reading instruction with differentiated instruction as needed. Universal screening identifies students who need additional diagnostic assessment and strategic supplementary instruction.  These students receive increasingly more intensive instruction with data-driven program adjustments as indicated by periodic assessments of progress.  A few students, whose skills are far behind their peers, may need to receive only specialized intervention, but for the shortest amount of time as possible.  This cycle of intervention, progress monitoring, and adjustment of the intervention continues—even if a determination for special education eligibility is made—in a seamless collaboration between regular and special education.

Read Naturally Assessments in an RTI Model

Read Naturally's valid and reliable oral reading fluency assessments and diagnostic phonics assessment have been designed to monitor and document student progress. Read Naturally assessments can be used to screen for students who are at risk for reading difficulty, to diagnosis specific instructional needs, and/or to assess student progress over time.

Benchmark Assessor Live and Quick Phonics Screener are used with students in any of the three tiers. Reading Fluency Progress Monitor is appropriate for frequent assessments of students in Tier 1 and Tier 2.
