This learning event is right for you if you are an Individual Needs or Classroom Teacher working with students with additional needs.
The Response to Intervention (RtI) model is founded on the premise that all students should have access to high quality core instruction in both the academic and social domains of the curriculum, with clearly articulated processes and protocols for the identification of and provision for students requiring additional levels of support. Key features of an RtI approach include universal screening, monitoring of student progress, implementation of evidence-based interventions, along with data driven decision-making processes that inform practice. This one-day program will explore the key elements of an RtI approach and provide opportunities for educators to plan for the implementation of an effective framework for student support.
Through the implementation of an effective intervention framework, schools can provide educational opportunities that focus on the growth and progress of all students. The RtI model is an internationally recognised framework of student support.
