Response to Intervention: What, Why, and How Valid Is It?

Conference: November 17, 2006

The Conference will focus on an analysis of Response to Intervention as an alternative approach to identifying children with learning disabilities. We will discuss:
- Deficit, Difference and Variability: How should we conceptualize literacy learning difficulties in the context of RTI?
- Evidence-based literacy interventions: What works with whom in what contexts?
- What should a culturally responsive second tier of instruction look like?
- Progress monitoring and data-based decision making in the context of RTI
- The assessment challenge for school systems in implementing RTI
- Re-thinking learning disabilities
- Moving forward with RTI in New York: How will RTI help public schools serve all students more effectively?
