Response to Intervention (RTI) / Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)
This course introduces the practice of Response to Intervention (RTI), and how it identifies challenging behavior and students at risk for poor learning outcomes. Students will also learn about RTI's history and the law, as well as the three tiers of RTI, (whole class, small group interventions, and intensive interventions), and of course the process, strategies, and how to apply it. In addition, the course introduces Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), a comprehensive framework that supports all learners (struggling through advanced), through academics, social, emotional, and behavioral services. The three tiers of MTSS, (research-based instruction, targeted intervention, and intensive intervention) are covered, including instruction on data-based decision-making, positive behavior intervention and supports, and universal screening data to create individual student interventions.
NOTE: Required book must be acquired separately.
This course is applicable towards the Exceptional Children Certificate.
