Providing Information about RTI to Families
Communicating information about Response to Intervention (RTI) to parents and families is a key role for educators and administrators in an RTI process. Several tools have been created to help with this communication.
The parent primer published by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) is a resource that includes specific ways parents can be involved in RTI. www.nasponline.org/resources/factsheets/rtiprimer.aspx
The National Research Center on Learning Disabilities (NRCLD) authored a report entitled, “Helping Educators Discuss Responsiveness to Intervention with Parents and Students”. The report describes RTI and distills aspects of the RTI process that need to be considered by families when participating in RTI.
