Done well, Response to Intervention can make a huge difference in a school’s success in meeting the educational needs of all students. But, there are many common pitfalls on the way to effective implementation, says nationally known RTI trainer and consultant Wayne Callender.

Critical to a sustainable RTI program, says Wayne, is a school-wide approach rather than an individual approach to assessment,intervention and problem-solving. This ensures there is a system in place for identifying students who need support and for providing them with effective interventions without delay. Wayne highlights the importance of establishing both protocols and a problem-solving culture.

Webinar Topics: 

  • The problems with a one-student-at-a-time approach
  • Why RTI should not be left to special education but should be the responsibility of all education departments

  • How to use data effectively to guide decisions by establishing data meetings and using data walls.
  • The instructional approaches that yield the most signficant outcomes for struggling students
