will be met before entering special education by interventions. It consists of the first stage the universal screening, then students are broken up into three tiers. Tier 1 consist of your students who are on track and aren’t struggling, also known as benchmark. Tier 2 are the students who receive additional support as needed in certain subjects. This is also known as strategic. The third tier, known as intrusive, is for students who do not respond to interventions is tier 2. This is where they are usually tested to see if they qualify for special education. 2. List at least four benefits of using an RTI approach with struggling students. a. Early Intervention i. Instead of waiting till 3 rd or 4 th grade for the student’s issues to be addressed, teachers can see who is falling behind earlier and start helping them b. Unbiased i. The RTI approach helps get rid of bias recommendations for students to receive special education. c. Identifies Learning Disabilities i. This goes along with the early intervention and being unbiased. RTI helps students receive high-quality instruction before being referred to special education. There are fewer “false positives” by using this approach. d. Frequent Progress Monitoring i. How frequent a student is assessed depends on which tier they are in. The universal screening is given one to three times per year. Tier 1 is assessed monthly, Tier 2 is every one to two weeks, and Tier 3 is once a week.
