RTI Reaches Adolescence: Will it make it to Adulthood? A Case for Cautious Optimism

As response to intervention (RTI) grows into its adolescence, questions about efficacy and challenges with implementation have emerged. In this webinar, panelists Lynn Fuchs, Doug Fuchs, Allison Gandhi, and Rebecca Zumeta Edmonds address findings from the recent Institute of Education Sciences evaluation of RTI, as well as lessons learned from state and local evaluations of implementation. They also discuss how use of increasingly available high-quality resources, combined with intensive, comprehensive implementation provide reasons for optimism that RTI can indeed progress from a tumultuous adolescence to successful adulthood.
