by Dr. Valerie Robnolt, Amy Hutton, M.F.A, and Dr. James McMillan (November 2015)
With the reauthorization of the Individual with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (U.S. Department of Education, 2004), Response to Intervention (RTI) became an alternative method of identifying children with disabilities. Much research as been done regarding how to implement RTI, effective strategies for RTI, and outcomes of RTI, which is not the focus of the current study. This investigation will focus on assessing the current perceptions of elementary school educators and staff on their current understanding of and needs for more effective implementation of RTI.
